Chios Island

Chios is in the North Aegean, it has a span of 842 km2 (325mi2) and 51.936 inhabitants in 2001. The island is famous for its mastic produce, which takes place in the south. Some of these southern villages are Mesta, Pyrgi, Kalamoti, Vessa and Elata, also known as Matsichochoria, and they have controlled the mastic gum production since the Roman period. In the central part of the island is the village of Vrontados with its unique local ‘rocket fights’ during Easter, Karfas with its sandy beaches and Kambos with its medieval mansions. On the northern part of the island is the town of Volissos, reputedly the birthplace of the epic poet Homer. Kardamyla is on the eastern side and one of the largest towns of the island. In the interior of the island is Nea Moni, an 11th century monastery with marvelous mosaics that have survived from fire and earthquakes in the 1800.

Interesting information about Chios can be found through the Greek Travel Pages (GTP) and Wikipedia.
