    Graet to wander around and great for me. A well preserved roman street, original mosaics, wall paintngs, marble and archways all very absorbing and free.
    For the kids a bit more on site information would have been good to bring things to life a bit more.

    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

    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.

    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.
