Volax: s unique surrounding of big round rocks gives the whole landscape a lunar appearance. It was established in the 14th-century or older. It lies on a little plateau in the centre of Tinos in an average altimeter of 284m above sea level. It rests in a gorge that looks as if it has been pelted with boulders. Large, almost perfectly round grey rocks dot the plateau and slopes around Volax, creating a quite stunning sight and unique geological phenomenon. The big round rocks of plutonic origin that encircle it, create an appearance that seduces the tourists with its peculiarity.
