Things To See
Sanctuary of Asklepios: This is the islands' most significant archaeological site. It is about 4 kms from the town standing on a hill. The Asklepieion, offers views over the district as well as Turkey. The site consisted of a religious sanctuary to Asclepius, the God of healing. The Temple and School of Medicine were established after the death of Hippocrates. This is an extensive site over three levels, with the ruins of temples and baths.
Castle of the Knights: Along with the castles on Rhodes and Bodrum, the castle on Kos, built in the 14th century and used by the Knights of St. John, was a defence against the troops of the Ottoman Empire. Today the ramparts offer fantastic views over the town.
Casa Roman: A restored 3rd-century Roman villa that straddles what appears to have been an earlier Hellenistic residence. This roman villa was impressive, with 26 rooms and 3 pools with shady courtyards. The mosaics depict dolphins and lions. The dining room has decorated marble walls and the other rooms were lavishly painted during the Roman era.
Kos Museum: For a town the size of Kos, this is an impressive archaeological museum, built by the Italians in the 1930s to display mostly Hellenistic and Roman sculptures and mosaics uncovered on the island.
Hippocrates Plane Tree: Why not picnic at the foot of the oldest tree in Europe. It is located only a short walk toward the harbour at the entrance bridge to the castle. Standing with extensive support, this is said to be the Tree of Hippocrates, where he once taught his students.
