Chios Kampos Village
Kampos village Chios: This beautiful village lies only 5 km south of Chios Town. It is the closest village to the airport and one of the few places in Chios that preserves its medieval character, despite the fact that is situated close to the capital. Kampos has recently been proclaimed by the Ministry of Culture as a historical site. The historical course of the village begins from the Byzantine times, where most of the mansions were built but they were later ruined by the catastrophic earthquake of 1881.
Today, there are many Neoclassical houses with traditional architecture which are well-preserved through time. Every mansion and estate is considered a unique masterpiece with exceptional architecture and most of them are two-stored with great gardens and colorful terraces. The surrounding area is covered with citrus trees and mastic trees. The narrow streets and the typical architecture of the stone houses are the most important features of this beautiful settlement.
