Geocache Description:


The Castle of the Knights in Kos, sometimes referred to as Kos Castle, was the one of the fortifications of the Knights Hospitaller. Begun in the fourteenth century, the main purpose of the Castle of the Knights was to defend Kos from the Ottomans.

In 1495, the Castle of the Knights was damaged by an earthquake and then it was restored in the sixteenth century. What remains of the Castle of the Knights today is a great mixture of the different construction periods of the site. Many of its thick walls and imposing towers remain intact and even the some battlements can still be seen.

The cache is hidden on the outside of the castle. To find him, you do not need to buy a ticket and enter his territory. When the logbook is full, please add the new one.

It's a very beautiful place, please take a photo and add in the log :)

Good luck ;)
