See the beginnings of medicine under Hippocrates Tree, where legend says the great physician taught his students. This plane tree, a species found all over Europe, is thought to be the largest of its kind with a 12 m (39 ft) diameter. It is easy to spot in the Square of the Platane in the center of Kos, protected by a fence and marked with a plaque. Stop by the tree to thank the "Father of Medicine" for his contribution to the healing arts.
