    A ‘must do’ when in Kos
    You have to visit this when in Kos but it’s not entirely impressive. I’m sure the council/government could invest more. The scaffolding structure holding the tree up is a shame. I understand that it is needed but it could be more sympathetically done. Lovely little lanes and squares nearby though.

    The tree needs a little more loving
    It’s an interesting little square, with a cafe, a few stalls around it & an old mosque (boarded up because of damage & safety). The tree itself is not the original tree, as that would mean the tree was planted somewhere around 460BC & survived numerous earthquakes, battles & surrounding renovations - which is unlikely to say the least. That said, it is a nice tree, being semi cared for by the fencing & structure around it. It could do with a bit more watering & a litter pick, but if you like this sort of thing (historical, stories, mythology or Greek culture etc) I’m sure you’ll like it. If not, perhaps head up the ally’s to bars, restaurants, harbour or shopping area 😊

    Hipocrates tree
    It is lovely to see also Hipocrates statue in a little park, and have stroll around Old Kos Town and ancient sites, and castle. Usually there is someone playing instrument or painting. You can sit at the bench and reflect on moment. It's hard to do good photo as tree is fenced to prevent further damage.

Kos town is beautiful and the history is simply amazing. Fascinated by this. Sad we couldn’t visit the castle but spent some time around the tree.

Could be cleaned up a bit and more taken care of, lovely thing to see but do think it needs a bit of tlc. It’s such a shame as it could be an amazing place .

Nice square but needs work as covered in weeds,faded signs etc. Easy to get to from the harbour and we enjoyed looking at the cannons but mosque next door is run down and ruined the experience for us personally.

Interesting tree and statue but as others have said it could do with a bit more love. It’s in a lovely little square and while we were there there was a couple of people playing instruments and it had a lovely feel about it.

Lovely walk to old town and the history of the tree. Beautiful place to walk around especially in the evening..

We went to see the tree. It was late in the afternoon and there was rubbish everywhere, rough sleepers, teens on bikes. Not very inviting. The tree was ok. Great piece of history. Wouldn’t rush back.
