This home is part of the famous Mastic villages on Chios; a series of fortified villages built in the 14th century. Some are very impressive with their intricately painted houses. This so-called ‘Mastichochoria’ is an area well known for the production of mastic; the mastic tree’s hardened resin, only harvested on Chios. It is a significant part of the local economy, and to protect this throughout history, the villages were built out of sight from the sea and surrounded by high walls. The central tower had no door at street level but was entered by ladders which were used as bridges from the rooftops and then pulled up. It’s an impressive sight to see, and mastic is a product widely used in cooking, having also a number of health benefits. Additionally, the tasty liqueur Mastiha and various sweets are produced from the mastic resin, also referred to as “tears of the gods”.
