Greece - Kos Island - Aesclepeion
Collage - Original view recommended!

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!

I went there by bike, a bit steep on my way to the Aesclepeion and going back to Kos City I did by the laws of gravity...

Text is also available in other languages than English: look at the left column of the link to check if your language is there too.
