our landlady recommended a visit to this unusual "shrine" for the citrus industry on Chios. It may sound a bit quirky but the Citrus "museum" is a fascinating place.

There are certainly nicer estates in Kambos region but the museum is worth visiting. The video that shows in the museum tells the interesting history of the Kambos region from its blooming periods until modern times. The estate itself was a bit disappointing... it looks as if the end of the season (end of september) is not the best time... More

It was by far the most fascinating museum tour I've ever experienced. A great place that captures the spirit of Kambos. Run by an amazing team, Citrus is not to be missed when visiting Chios.

Interesting to visit. You can spend time in the garden drinking your coffee, reading a book while you let your kids play safely in the garden
