Show sight on map

Asclepius Kos is built on the slopes of a hill with lush vegetation and sea views and the Asia Minor coast. It is the most important archaeological monument on the island, but also one of the most famous asclepiea of antiquity. In ancient times it was a place of worship of the god Asclepius and a place of healing and teaching medicine. There he taught Hippocrates, one of the most important representatives of medicine in antiquity, in the school he had founded in the area of Asclepius. Unlike the sanctuary of Asclepius in Epidaurus, scientific medicine was particularly developed in Kos.
