Explore the ruins of Kos Island's millennia-old Asklepion. In ancient Greece, an asklepion was a sacred healing temple where medicine was systematized and many were taught the art of healing. Of the approximately 300 asclepions, Kos Island's was one of the largest and best known. Explore the remains of this remarkable structure, dating to around 400 BC. See the medical school, temples, and thermal baths. Make sure to visit the highest terrace of the complex for views of much of the island's eastern side. Head to the small on-site museum to learn more about the practice of medicine in ancient Greece. Put Asklepion into our Kos Town vacation generator and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

Access can be by train (leaving every hour) from the city center, or by Bus (cheaper) on the other side of the street where the train starts. The Asklepion site is really impressive to many markets, columns, remains of all kinds, etc. all well maintained. We toured in 45 minutes approximately. Worth the trip but the strike price one can all because I find it excessive: €8 / person! 4 or 5 euros would have been fairer. and no information in French. Toilet at the entrance.show original

Persoonlijk vond ik 8€ p.p. te duur voor wat het is. We hebben de taxi moeten nemen want er stopt geen bus in de buurt dus dat telt wel op.Personally I found 8 € p.p. too expensive for what it is. We have the need to take taxi because there are no bus stops in the neighborhood so that counts.show original
