10 Lesser Known Ancient Ruins in Europe


4. The Temple of Asklepieon, Kos

In ancient Greece, an Asklepieon was a temple to Asclepius, the god of healing. At one point, there were 300 Asklepieons around the country. Today, though, only a handful of ruins are in reasonable shape. One of them is the Asklepieon of Kos, on a Greek island of the same name that’s very close to Asian Turkey. The Asklepieon of Kos is a beautifully preserved temple set in idyllic countryside. It’s great for a day’s exploration.
