Sunset in Zia

4 reviews
Charming Zia in the southernmost slope, whose superb location makes it the perfect spot for viewing spectacular sunsets and gazing at the nearby islands of Kalymnos and Pserimos as well as the Turkish coast in the distance.<br><br>During the summer the settlement of Zia is bursting with activity from the countless visitors who come to taste local delicacies served in charming traditional taverns, to purchase unique local products and souvenirs and to stroll through the cobblestone alleyways all the way up to its crystal-clear fresh water springs, the most well-known of which is Kefalovrisi.

A really interesting look at Hippocrates family history and the impact he had on medicine. Some great exhibits to look at and a beautiful garden featuring the herbs and flowers he worked with. We were given a tour and talk on arrival by a really friendly and informative guide, before being left to explore on our own. €3 each entry Wouldn’t be very interesting for young children, and lots of statues balanced on plinths

Quick but super interesting museum detailing medical knowledge at the time of Hippocrates, and some of his beliefs and contributions. It's only a few rooms, but there are lots of posters with info, and some really cool displays of the medicines and instruments. It's near the 'medical school ruins', very cheap admission (3 E) and included a brief intro by the staff. If you're interested in history at all, I'm not sure how you could miss this being on the island where Hippocrates is from!

We were not quite sure what we were visiting after seeing the signpost to the 'International Hippocratic Foundation of Kos', but decided to go and have a look. It was absolutely fascinating, showing the history of the use of herbs and other plants in medicine, showing how dislocated bones were reset, and the repair of fractures amongst many other things. What was particularly interesting was reading about which plants were used for what ailments - staggering to discover that similar medicines are used today. Some of the tools used in treatments, such as trepanning saws, haven't changed in over two millennia! Well worth a visit.
