“Next time you’re island hopping around the gorgeous isles of Greece, do not leave Chios off your list,” the Huffington Post advises its readers in a photo feature dedicated to Chios in the northeastern Aegean.
Entitled “Chios is the most magical Greek Island you didn’t know existed,” the Huffington Post reveals that the island is most famous for its production of mastic, an aromatic resin that forms in teardrop shapes that comes from trees growing in the fertile Mastihohoria region.
The Huffington Post then refers to the products of mastic that are produced on Chios and introduces Pyrgi, the island’s largest mastic village that features buildings adorned with geometric patterns, called graffito.
Reference is also made to the Nea Moni Monastary, a renowned UNESCO world heritage site, which houses treasures such as mosaics and human skulls, among other things.
