Platani (Kermentes) Village Kos: The small village of Platani is located at the halfway between Kos Town and the archaeological site of Asklepieion, just 3 km from the town centre. The main characteristic of this village is that most inhabitants are Greek citizens of Turkish origin, which is why the village is also known with its Turkish name, Kermentes. There is a mosque in Platani as well as an Orthodox church. You will find many traditional taverns in this village with delicious recipes from Asia Minor. Close to Platani, there is a Jewish cemetery under pine trees.
