The north is mainly rocky and mountainous, the south is flatter and more fertile. In the south grow the world-famous mastic trees that produce a precious resin, a natural product that only occurs in the mastic villages of Chios and nowhere else in the world!Unfortunately, the great fire of 2012 destroyed many hectares of these trees, which means that it will take at least ten years before mastic production will again be carried out in certain areas on Chios. Among the mastic villages there are a number of “gems” that you should definitely visit as a tourist (Mesta and Pyrgi).
