Cultural Foundation of Tinos

The Cultural Foundation of Tinos (ITIP) is a public benefit, non-profit institution, sponsored and supported by the Sacred Foundation of the Church of the Annunciation. Purpose of the foundation is the research, study, and promotion of historic cultural heritage of the island along with the natural and man-made environment and the designation of Tinian people’s artistic and spiritual accomplishments. In addition, the institution aims at the enhancement, encouragement and promotion of young artists and spiritual people’s endeavors, within the framework of maintenance and carrying on the tradition which has established Tinos in national level and brought the island into spotlight, classifying it in a prominent position concerning visual arts.

The neoclassical building that houses the Cultural Foundation of Tinos dominates the waterfront of Chora, the capital of Tinos. The building was originally constructed in 1925 by Argyris Viridakis as a large hotel. It was bought by the Sacred Foundation of the Church of the Annunciation in 1977, while the inauguration of the renovated building took place in 2001.
