Things to do on Kos Island - Kos Churches

I have created a new web page about Things to do on Kos Island - Kos Churches

http://www.sunsethotelkos.com/churches.html
There are numerous churches spread throughout Kos Island. Most are small and look something like this Church (Pictured) on Mt. Zini (near Kefalos), with fantastic views of Kefalos Bay

The Church of Saint John the Baptist (Epta Bemata), (photo) is still in use at the Cemetery at Kos Town and it is said to contain frescoes dating back to the 12th and 13th century. It was originally an early christian baptistery of the 5th - 6th century

Another Church (Photo) is in Ruins but again the Views of Kefalos Bay are fantastic. It is located west of Kefalos

Another interesting Church (pictured )is located in Old Pyli (Paleo Pyli) where you can wander around the abandoned town

Please contact me at rajohn1@adam.com.au/rajohn1 if you find any errors on this page.

Thanks
