Gallery Chios 2000

May 23 2014

Likeable Chios (Χίος; hee-os) is one of Greece’s bigger islands, and is significant in national history, along with the tiny neighbouring island of Inousses, as the ancestral home of shipping barons. Its varied terrain ranges from lonesome mountain crags in the north to the citrus-grove estates of Kampos, near the island’s port capital in the centre, to the fertile Mastihohoria in the south – the only place in the world where mastic trees are commercially productive.
