Antimachia in Kos

Antimachia is located about 24 kilometres from Kos Town near the airport. It is a fairly large village with just over 2,000 inhabitants, making it one of the largest villages on the island.

Personally, I think that Antimachia is one of the nicest villages on Kos. One of the reason is that you come close to the Greek everyday life. For example here are several kafenións where old men sit and talk over a cup of Greek coffee. The mass tourism has not yet found its way here.

Antimachia is famous for two things: the many nice windmills and the tremendous castle of the same name, located a few kilometres outside the village. Antimachia Castle was built in the 14th century and is an impressive sight from a distance, because it is really big and the walls are really thick.

But when you get inside the gates there is not much to see. Nevertheless, it is worth going here, because the landscape is exciting and it looks more like Santorini than Kos, and the castle is incredibly impressive from the outside, please have a look here.
