Asclepius is the ancient Greek god of health and medicine. Asklepion Temple was built in memory of him and it also served as the ancient hospital. We love it! It is old and beautiful. It has a special meaning as well, at the end Kos island is the homeland of world's medicine.

The Asklepion was an ancient Greek temple dedicated tot he healing arts located on Kos Island, in Greece. It has an idyllic setting with a view of the Aegean and Asia Minor beyond. The walk from the ferry is about 4km through villages and orchards.

Das Asklepion (auch Asklepieion) ist die wichtigste Ausgrabungsstätte auf Kos und für alle, die sich zumindest ein bisschen für Geschichte und Kultur interessieren, ein absolutes Muss. Es macht Sinn, eine Führung mitzumachen, um zu verstehen, was die alten Ruinen überhaupt darstellen. An einigen Stellen sind aber auch Tafeln zur Erklärung angebracht. Und nicht die Sonnencreme vergessen, denn es gibt nur wenig Schatten! Noch ein Tipp: Es fährt auch eine "Bimmelbahn" (kleiner Zug) vom Zentrum hierher.

'Ενα από τα τρία σημαντικότερα Ασκληπιεία στον κόσμο κι ένας σπουδαίος ιερός χώρος της αρχαιότητας και της επιστήμης. Θεραπευτήρια, ιατρική σχολή, ναοί, ξενώνες μαρτυρούν το λαμπρό του παρελθόν όταν εδώ δίδασκε και θεράπευε ο Ιπποκράτης. Οι κάτοικοι του νησιού ήταν και είναι περήφανοι για το Ασκληλιείο τους. Ακόμα και σήμερα, ως απλός επισκέπτης νιώθεις την ενέργειά του να σε θεραπεύει. Η θέα από τον καταπράσινο λόφο είναι υπέροχη!
