Tinos (Greek: Τήνος) is a town and a former municipality on the island of Tinos, in the Cyclades, Greece. Since the 2011 local government reform it is part of the municipality Tinos, of which it is the seat and a municipal unit.[2] Its population was 5,203 inhabitants at the 2001 census. It shares the island of Tinos with the municipal units of Exomvourgo and Panormos.

Tinos is the largest town on the island and has been the administrative capital since the destruction of the former town and fortress of Tinos on the mountain Exobourgo. The current town was formerly known as S. Nicolò.[3]
