Chios, KambosThe area to the south of Chios city is known as Kambos. It is completely flat and it is covered by a dense network of small roads. Most of the land is planted with citrus trees. The orchards are individually surrounded by high stone fences to protect the trees form wind and dust. The scenery of Kambos is distinctive and bears little resemblance to that of the other Aegean Islands.

The aristocratic families of Chios, both Genoese and native, built houses here on their private estates from as early as the fourteenth century. Behind the high, forbidding walls, each estate was a world of its own, with pleasant courtyards, comfortable houses, shady avenues of trees, and flower gardens.




Below you can see pictures from inside the estates.
