Monday 28th September and we were sightseeing and exploring in Kos Town and the Old Town, we visited Eleftherias Square where this old cathedral is situated.

It sits in between the impressive Farmers Market and Casa Del Fascio buildings.

Sadly the Cathedral was one of the many buildings affected by the earthquake, which hit the region on the 21st July 2017, with magnitude of 6.7.

Sadly due to the damage the structure is unsound and closed.

Just because it is closed it does not mean it is not worth visiting. Although damaged It still a beautiful building with its beauty still visible through the scaffolding that surrounds it.

It does remain a special feature of Eleftherias Square and still contributes to making the Square a special place to visit

The cathedral was was closed to the public when I visited because of damage caused by the earthquake a couple of years ago. Damage was evident in the form of quite a few cracks on the exterior of the building. However it is a beautiful building and well woth visiting and photgraphing. Hopefully it will be repaired in the near future. It is located very near the town bus station and there are steps on one side of it which lead down into the quaint tourist shopping area of the town and slightly further to the harbour and sea front. From the other side of the building is access to Eleftharius Square where the indoor market place is located together with a number of restaurants etc, around the square. On one occasion when crossing the square I was lucky enough to see a traditionally dressed group of people together with number of very modern glamourous young Greek ladies performing traditional dancing in the middle of the square to entertain the tourists.

Happened across the Cathedral on a wander around Kos Town . Spent approx 15 / 20 minutes in it.
I've been in plenty of Greek Church's over the years on other Greek Islands and this was as ornate as any other I've been in.
Lovely lovely church.
Ladies if your shoulders are uncovered on the way in ,please take a shawl from one of the ladies outside the church prior to going in and cover your shoulders up . It's customery. Don't baulk like some English tourists that I saw. It's their church , religion and customs. Blend in and don't create hassle, you look like an idiot , to them and everyone around you.

Please also be aware that despite what you read on lots of Social Platforms about Kos and most of the Greek Islands , there is NO , NO MIGRANT problem !!!!
I was in an All Inclusive Resort but spent a lot of time every second day or so of a two week holiday in Kos Town. I pretty much covered all of it several times and not once did I see a Migrant of any Nationality anywhere. Kos and other islands are suffering from miss information and rumour. It's not the case that people are roaming in packs begging. It couldn't be further from the truth.
People from Kos and Greece don't deserve bad publicity . They are very welcoming and genuine people and their economy deserves our support as holiday visitors.

Unfortunately, due to earthquake damage in 2017, the cathedral is closed. However it is situated in a nice square and does have some beautiful paintings on the outside of the building.

Kos town cathedral is of historical value and well worth a visit. Kos town has many and varied sites worth visiting, many tours and activity’s to enjoy, 1 of my must do was the Coco-mat ( wooden bicycle) tours a must from getting from 1 attraction to another. There is an abundance of cafes/ restaurants to choose from on route or venture further afield, a truly wonderful experience

Lovely to walk around but you can’t get in due to the earthquake damage. Nice to see it during the day and then at night. You will walk past it while exploring Kos town.

A beautiful building from the 1930's, damaged by the 2017 earthquake. A photographic opportunity to create a memory for years to come and a reminder of the impact of earthquakes on our fragile earth
