Vouno village is one of the famous mastic villages located in the southeastern part of the island. The village named ''Vouno'' because it is built on a rock, which saved it from the devastating earthquake of 1881. The village impresses for its medieval architecture. The houses are tall, made of stone, all connected with roofs called ''votes'' by locals. The communication of the village with the outside world was through two gates, which opened the day and closed at night. The inhabitants are mostly farmers and cultivate mastic trees, almond trees, olive trees and vines.
