Fodor's Expert Review Castle of Antimacheia

Castle of Antimacheia Archaeological Site/Ruins

The thick, well-preserved walls of this 14th-century fortress look out over the sweeping Aegean and Kos's green interior. Antimacheia was another stronghold of the Knights of St. John, whose coat of arms hangs above the entrance gate. Within the walls, little of the original complex remains, with the exception of two stark churches; in one of them, Ayios Nikolaos, you can make out a primitive fresco of St. Christopher carrying the infant Jesus.
