Kos Asklipieion!

Kos historical sites include the ruins of Kos Asklipieion or Asklepieion. They are at the top of those important ancient sites in the Island of Kos. The beautiful site of Kos Asklipieion is on the hill in Platani, about 3.5 kilometres at the southwest of the beautiful Kos Town.

Pine trees cover the hill and make this area one of the beautiful sites in Kos Island. In addition, from the top of the hill, people enjoy beautiful scenes of Kos Town and Turkey across the Aegean Sea.

The Asklipieion / Asklepieion comprises the religious sanctuary of Asclepius, the god of healing, the healing centre and the school of medicine. The education in the school of medicine follows the teaching method of Hippocrates, the first Greek doctor to approach diagnosis and diseases treatments.
