Chios architecture differes from the other islands in North-Eastern Aegean. In spite of the loss of many buildings and houses during 1881 eartquake, the island created its typical architecture with narrow alleys and Turkish houses around Genoese-Byzantine castle. The island created its unique architecture with the mixture of Byzantine, Genoese, Turkish and medieval architecture.

The typical architecture on the island is mostly seen in mastic villages. The houses in these villages were built in forstress style. The houses were built attached each other just like a fortress wall to protect the village. These villages were built in 14th and 15th centuries.

Kampos, south of Chios town, has great mansions and houses within beautiful gardens, cistern and wells inside which were built by Thymiana stone which is red or yellow stone found in this area.

Pyrghi which is the biggest mastic village has a unique architecture called xysta which was introduced to the island by the Genoese.
