Photographer's Note

The mansion houses in Chora are perhaps the oldest urban dwellings in all Cyclades and belonged to rich traders. The main feature of the houses is the large rooms, high ceilings, the large thick walls of stone and internal luxurious layout. A hall dominated in the centre of the house and as a result of its location was to be hosted there the life of the family. At the bottom of the house are situated big basements for storage products.
The mansions in the districts outside from the fort were built by wealthy Greeks. Most mansions have a fort character because of the territory and the hazard of the region at the year that was built.
