Kambos

 
zimnis-mansion in Kambos, Chios"Tetteriko" is today the biggest estate in Kambos, and within its 10 acres stand the main building (mansion), two other auxiliary buildings and a well-worked pebble-paved yard surrounded by a reservoir, a well and a fountain. The main building, of a highest quality architecture, was destroyed at the 1881 earthquake and rebuilt right after this, following the patterns of the neoclassical technique, like the rest of the Kambos buildings.
By a ministerial decree of 1990,"Mitarakiko", "Tetteriko" and "Perivoli" estate, were all identified as works of art and preserved monuments.
typical yard of Kambos, ChiosKambos is adorned with many private and parish churches with impressive bell-towers, examples of significant art.
Kambos has recently been proclaimed by the Greek Ministry of Culture as a historical site and a number of restoration works has been done both by citizens and the Public Authorities.
The Municipality of Chios has already restored "Mavrocordatiko" an old estate in the center of the area. Many of those mansions are now working as hostels, because Kambos attracts so many tourists not only in the summer but in the spring too, when trees and flowers all blossom.
