Welcome to Tarampados

Existing since 1700, Tarampados has many arches and many more striking dovecotes. The dovecotes, spread in the island during the Venetian domination, offered the residents a significant financial income from the trade of meat and feces of pigeons.Dovecotes are unaltered examples of local folk architecture, made by Tinians and carved by strong winds, rain and sea salt. No other island in the Aegean has such a large number and a big variety of dovecotes, which are almost all still maintained by the current owners.
