Originally built on its own island, Kos Town Castle now stands at the entrance of the Kos harbor facing Halikarnassos Castle on the Turkish coast, opposite Kos. Together these two castles controlled the strait between Kos and Turkey. The castle is made up of two defensive precincts separated by a moat. Comprised of local stone and parts of the ruins of other buildings, the outer precinct was constructed in the late 15th or early 16th century, while the interior dates to the 14th century. Cross the drawbridge from the outer to inner precinct to view the four towers inside. Climb one of the towers to look out over Kos and across the strait to Turkey.

De bekende Johannieterburcht is de moeite van een eenmalig bezoek waard maar dan heb je het ook wel gezien. Weliswaar vrij groot qua oppervlakte maar niet echt bijzonder.The well-known Saint John Castle is worth a one time visit but then you have it seen. Although quite large in area but not really special.show original
was very interesting and also you get some nice views from around the habour lots of photos to take too
Der Eintritt kostet 4€ pro Person. Innen gibt es viele Steine zu sehen, die Ausmaße sind schon gewaltig allerdings ist das meiste zerstört. Die Aussicht ist es auf jeden Fall wert.Tickets cost € 4 per person. Inside there are many stones, the dimensions are already huge but most of it is destroyed. The view's worth it anyway.show original
