Western Archaeological Zone


Your next taste of ancient Kos is actually an entire neighborhood of archaeological treasures, collectively known as the Western Archaeological Zone. Amongst the ancient columns, walls and arches, you’ll find the Gymnasium, dating from the 2nd century BC, where athletes would prepare and oil themselves up before competing in the neighboring Stadium (approximately 180m long and 30m wide). There are also three sets of Roman Baths (the Harbor, Northern and Western Baths) that would have included intricate heating mechanisms, as well as Christian basilicas and other gems depicting everyday life in antiquity.
