Castle of the Knights of the Order of St. John (Kos town)

Castle of the Knights of the Order of St. John (Kos town)

Follow the Boulevard of Palms over the moat and explore this Templar castle that was built in the 15thC. Towers such as Del Caretto’s Bastion, cannon-posts, stone-carved coats of arms, and storage areas still remain, providing history aficionados much to admire. In a hurry to build the castle, the Knights used archaeological remains to finish the walls – keep an eye out for this unusual trait.
