CHIOS

Chios, situated in the Aegean Sea and the fifth largest of the Greek islands, is famous for its mastic (gum) which grows only there and it has been raised since the 8th-7th century A.D. Chios is a mountainous island with only a few valleys in the south where the mastic grows in the famous medieval villages, known as Mastichochoria (Mastic Villages). Built in the Middle Ages with narrow-paved paths, arches and a fortification look, these villages display exquisite architecture and unique decorative elements, such as the ksista, scratched surfaces, with black and white geometric designs on the facades of the houses in Pyrgi, the biggest of the villages.
