What's Ancient Agora like

The ancient agora dates back to the 3rd century BC and was a market and meeting place for the ancient Greeks who lived in Kos. The site is free to enter and wander around, on the north side you’ll find the ruins of a temple dedicated to Hercules, a shrine of Aphrodite as well as the remains of a 5th century Christian basilica.

Unfortunately, the site is overgrown in many places and not particularly well maintained, that said you still get a sense of how people lived over 2000 years ago and it’s a very peaceful place to walk round, definitely a good break from the lively Kos town that surrounds it.

There are a couple of informational boards up to give you more information about the agora so look out for those if you want to learn more about the history and what went on all those years ago.

To find the ancient agora look for Eleftherias square and head through the archway that’s covered in pink flowers. you’ll find the entrance to the agora down that side road on the right hand side. Also near by is Neratzia Castle and the Hippocrates tree, so try to fit those into your time in Kos town as well.
