Greece - Kos Island - Aesclepeion
Second level.

Sketch of the temple dedicated to Aesclepios and a picture of the statue of Aesclepios from the Archeological Museum in Kos City.

Approx. at 4 kilometer's distance from Kos City you can find one of the oldest healing centres in the world. The father of medicine, Hippocrates, also studied and practiced here. Hippocrates was of the opinion that not only the disease was to be healed but that attention and care should be given to the person as a whole. Something that is far too often forgotten again nowadays!
