The Soulas Spring

Situated next to the Zeioula river between the sixth and seventh watermill this somewhat hidden hot spring forms a pool that is warm enough to be bathed in even in the dead of winter. Something for the brave to consider.... 
As with all the ancient Natural hot springs of the area it is supposed to have some healing powers...








The Kermete Mosque

The Kermete Mosque is situated in the Platani region near Kos Town. It is the only fully operational Mosque on the island of Kos. The surrounding village originally known as Kermetes was renamed Platani in 1964 in an effort to limit the appellations of Turkish origin. Most of the 1500 muslims living on the island actually live in this little village. The Mosque was built in 1778 by Hadji Hasan Pasa.  There is a small building close to the Mosque which is used as a library and houses a number of old Turkish books. There are also a couple of taps used for ablutions. The remains of the original ablution area are situated opposite the Mosque on the other side of the street.











The Ambavris windpump

This stunning windpump is situated on the road to Ambavri some 200 meters from the main road and has been highlighted as a monument in recent years. This is a relatively old system that has not been actually used for years due to its inefficiency compared to more modern means of pumping water.






The Hatziemmanouil Winery

The Hatziemmanouil winery is situated on the main road just after the Tigkaki crossroad as you go towards Kefalos on your left hand side. The winery is open on a daily basis for wine tasting, and a visit of the facilities. For more details you cans visit the site at:
