    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 .

    Very interesting to step inside and explore all the different rooms of the ancient bath house! The restoration is amazing, great work! There are informational boards explaining the history, which is enlightening. Definitely I would recommend stepping inside, it hardly takes half an hour to see everything. (I had six hours to explore Kos while waiting for a ferry to Nisyros, where we stayed for one week in September 2019.)

    They are just some steps. We were in Kos town on a Sunday so some of the places on the steps were closed but they look pretty and make a good photo opportunity. Also just opposite the I love Kos sign

    It was the Hellinistik and the Roman period and had a center of commerce near the port; At this time the Ancient Agora was built and had shops and a large market and places; also Roman Temples were constructed and very nice Roman Villas; a very nice Roman Villa offers a museum, (Casa Romana) ; Later on at Christian and Byzantine times were constructed churches; Kos was and is a wonderful place, so it changed hands many times;
    The Ancient Agora is a must to visit.

    Although called Dolphin Square it is used as a roundabout on a busy road along the harbour front.

    It is a small fountain which is painted blue and white, with 3 dolphin figures inside all surrounded by white wrought iron railings.

    Not easy to get up close to due to the volume of traffic.

    If passing have a quick look, not something to make a special journey to visit.

    Took longer to write the review than spent viewing the fountain

    This impressive building dominates along one side of Eleftherias Square in the centre of Kos Town.

    It's mighty clock tower, has a balcony below it and it was from here, on the 7th May 1948, the return of the Dodecanese islands to Greece was announced. There is plaque underneath the balcony to commemorate this historic event.

    Originally the Casa del Fascio (Beam House), built as the local office of the Italian National Fascist Party and a propaganda cinema.

    It is now a cafe/restaurant, Aegli, a great place to sit to enjoy a drink with some food, relax and watch the world go by.

    Sadly this was one of the many buildings affected by the earthquake, which hit the region on the 21st July 2017, with magnitude of 6.7. As result part of the building was damaged and remains closed up.

    It still remains to be a grand building and contributes to making the Square an enjoyable place to visit.

    Another historic building along Akti Miaouli in the harbour front area in Kos Town. It is located by the Police Station, Palazzo del Governo.

    The house was built in 1514 and is joined to the perimeter wall of the Town.

    The house is known as the Hospitaller House of Commander Francesco Sans, who was the Knight Hospitaller commander of the island.

    The house is not open to the public so can only be viewed from the pavement outside, not really a lot to see. There is a plaque mounted on the stone wall to inform was the building is. The brown wooden door is an interesting feature.

    This small Church, which dates to the late Byzantine Period. It is located in it's own gated enclosure by the Archeological Site of the Ancient Agora of Kos.

    It is known as the Church of Saint George tou Arrenagogeiou (of the Boys’ School) Kos. In 1882 the school was founded and the Church was incorporated into its grounds situated in the playground.

    A simple styled design building which is almost square in shape with a red domed roof with 8 arched windows.

    Not sure if the Church is permanently closed when not in use. The gate was locked when we visited on Monday 28th September. It is possible that it was closed due to COVID 19 restrictions.

    Along the side of the Church is the tomb of Archbishop Gerasimos of Kos.

    Although the school was destroyed by the earthquake on 23rd April 1933, the Church survived. The date is the Church's feast day.

    If passing by it is worth taking a few moments to stop and have a quick look

    This small fountain stands along side the Defterdar Mosque in the historic Eleftherias Square.

    It is octagonal in shape and stands on a circular stepped plinth.

    Nothing very special on it's own, however, combined with all the other elements it contributes to making the Square a must do in Kos Town.

    Making the assumption that worshippers would have washed here before entering the Mosque.

    Saw no evidence that the fountain was still in use.
