Statue of the "Father of Medicine"
Sep 2020 • Couples
Monday 28th September and we were out and about sightseeing and exploring Kos Town.

This bronze statue stands on a octagonal brick plinth . It is situated in a small park across the road from the harbour front.

It depicts Hippocrates surrounded by people,  which could be his students, which includes a woman holding a child.

Hippocrates was born in Kos c460 BC. He was a physician and he is often referred to as the Father of Medicine. He was also the founder of the Hippocratic School of Medicine.

Nice statue
Oct 2018 • Couples
Opposite the harbour, in a little garden, is this pleasant statue of Hippocrates teaching. There are some good details like a snake behind him and part of the Hippocratic oath on a board.
Well worth a look but doesn't take much time.

So many lovely things to see in Kos Town
Sep 2018 • Couples
We usually prefer to stay in the quieter areas when visiting the Greek Islands but it has been 30 years since we last visited Kos so decided the town was the place to be to re-visit some of the sites we saw previously. We weren't disappointed and everywhere we went there was something interesting to see.
