Lovely views from the top of the walls. Very interesting, well preserved. Well worth a visit for the views alone.

“The old castle in Kos town”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

It is worthwhile to visit the old castle. The entrance fee is only 3 euros. It is very interesting to walk around and imagine what took place there ages ago.
Outside the entrance is Hippocrates tree. It is said that he stood there and told people about his ideas.

“A must visit when in kos town”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

Take time to wonder how many people from around the world have strolled around this expanse drifting back in time as to when this was an active acropolis.

Sitting by the harbour looking over at turkey you realise the need to demonstrate at that time why they built such an a posing structure,nice gardens also surround this historical landmark with the tree from Ancient Greek mythology suggesting a link to a famous person from that time.

That's the conundrum I will leave you with to explore and find when you visit.

“Kos History”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

A visit round the castle is a must if you are interested in history. Also the town square is surrounded by very nice cafes and restuarants.
