In September 2012 i visited the war museum in Rethymno. It was a very intresting place with many war weapons. There was aircrafts, tanks, artillery canons, hand weapons and uniforms.
Some of the guns was outside some inside of the museum. If you travel to Rethymno go to this museum it is a very intresting place.

For many Greeks this is the only reason to visit Tinos. Everything else is secondary. It really is something to see the people crawl up to the church on their knees hoping for a miracle or giving thanks for a miracle in their life. What stories of heartache and pain, of loss, of love must be in the hearts of these people. Walking up to the icon is an emotional experience. Millions of people have put their hope in that icon and from the stories you hear many of them had their wishes fulfilled. Whether by chance or a miracle these people do believe in the power of the icon. The museum on the grounds is worth taking a look at, as well as the memorial to the Elli. They give out little booklets about how the icon was found, but they are only written in Greek. They also will give out oil (olive oil) which has been blessed on a little plastic bottle. Definitely worth the visit.

We travelled by superfast ferry from mykonos,having seen a tv programme about pilgrims.
The church is amazing , not crowded when we arrived about 1pm.
We saw several people crawling up, and the atmosphere was touching with the priest chanting, and people queing up to be blessed. most people give a voluntary donation and light a candle, most greek people kissing an icon.
An interesting museam and side chapels also.
It makes an interesting contrast to a mainly beach holiday,and gives an insite into greek religion

This is the place of pilgrimage for many Greeks and their devotion to the sacred icon is extraordinary. The underneath crypt is most interesting especially the memorial to the sunk battleship Elli.
