Kos Island, known as the father of medical science, is one of the most important symbols of the island in the hometown of Hippocrates and the world-famous Hippocrates Tree in the city center. Asklepion, located 4 km from the city center, is a historical site dedicated to Asklepios, the god of health, after the death of Hippocrates. In mythological times, Hippocrates has shown that human therapy can be achieved through education, and has established a medical center called Asklepion. Nowadays, there are historical temples, a medical school, the Roman Baths and the remains of the Apostle Apostle. Kos Island Archeology Museum, which was built by the Italians in 1935, and a statue of Hippocrates made of marble outside the ruins of Greek and Roman civilizations, is one of the most important places on the list of places to visit.
