Originally built on its own island, Kos Town Castle now stands at the entrance of the Kos harbor facing Halikarnassos Castle on the Turkish coast, opposite Kos. Together these two castles controlled the strait between Kos and Turkey. The castle is made up of two defensive precincts separated by a moat. Comprised of local stone and parts of the ruins of other buildings, the outer precinct was constructed in the late 15th or early 16th century, while the interior dates to the 14th century. Cross the drawbridge from the outer to inner precinct to view the four towers inside. Climb one of the towers to look out over Kos and across the strait to Turkey.
