Church of Ayia Paraskevi - Kos

Church of Ayia Paraskevi

Church of Ayia Paraskevi

Favorite thing: On a terrace behind the market place (Platia Eleftherias) stands a lovely Byzantine church. It's not a very big church but the most interesting to visit in Kos town.

Fountain at Platea Platanou - Kos

Fountain at Platea Platanou

Hippocrates plane tree

Favorite thing: At Platea Platanou, in front of the entrance to the Castle of the Knights stands a huge plane tree. It is supported by some kind of scaffolding because the tree is very old. Some say that Hippocrates often sat under this tree to teach his students medicine. However, the tree could never been that old. Normally it can get about 400 years old. Next to the tree you will find a lovely fountain. The fountain was used by the muslims for washing before entering the Loggia mosque.

Mandraki Harbour - Kos
Mandraki Harbour

Favorite thing: The harbour is a nice place to walk along the promenade, which will lead you from dolphin square to the castle and beyond. There are many colourful fishing boats and yachts for day trips. Along the promenade across the street you can have something to drink or eat in one of the many cafes and restaurants.

Palm tree avenue - Kos

Palm tree avenue

Palm tree avenue

Fondest memory: Palm tree Avenue is the most beautiful street in Kos town. This avenue lined by huge palm trees brings you from the castle to the centre of town. There is a stone bridge that crosses over Palm tree Avenue from Platea Platanou (where Hipprocates plane tree is), over the former moat to the castle entrance.
