Asclepeion Temple

+21

3 reviews of Asclepeion Temple

A fascinating place

We went for a walk to the Asclepo sanctuary, a Corinthian temple about 4 km from Kos. Built on three levels on a hill, it is dedicated to Asclepius, the god of medicine. Healings were performed here, thanks to the hot springs and healing waters. On the first level is the altar, dedicated to the sun and other gods. You can still see the remains of columns of other temples. A fascinating place.
