Take your child to Mastichochoria. A number of fortified settlements were raised here in the Middle Ages in order to protect against pirates. The southern part of the island is well known not only for the production of mastic but also for «medieval» Mesta, Olympi, Vessa, Kalamoti and Pyrgi. However, the villages are interesting not only as monuments of the middle ages. In Pyrgi, for example, the houses are decorated with a unique ornament, in a certain "scraped" way. It is believed that the technology was brought from Turkey or Byzantium, but nobody knows for sure. Copyright www.orangesmile.com
