Ancient Agora includes the remains of the ancient town of Kos. It is located close to the harbour. The ancient town had ample streets, sanctuaries, a stadium, gymnasium and other settlements.


The Hellenistic Gymnasium is part of a complex of the Hellenistic and Roman periods that also includes the Acropoli, the Hippodrome, the Nymphaeum a very elaborated structure dating from the 3rd century BC, as well as the ruins of the temples of Aphrodite and Hercules


The rich history of Kos, and all Dodecanese islands in general, has vividly left its mark on the architecture of the islands. That is the case with the mosques of Kos Town, strong reminders of the Ottoman rule on the island, that lasted for about four centuries.


The ruins of Dionysos Temple are located south of the Kos harbour, passing the ancient agora, on Vasileos Pavlou Street. It is close to the Roman House
