Mitarakiko

"Mitarakiko", located in Kambos in the center of Chios, is one of the area's most significant estates. The estate consists of the main building, the auxiliary building (anestatiko), a second ground-floor building (atelier) and the old mansion with the pebble-paved yard. These buildings are surrounded by a water reservoir, benches and a well, which are altogether characteristics exclusive to the Kambos area.

Mitarakiko was the home of the famous Greek painter, G. Mitarakis, who lived in the atelier. The main building and the atelier were built after the 1881 earthquake. This estate was declared to be a historical monument in the 1992 Ministerial Decree.
