Jak nazwa wskazuje, jest miejscem ciekawym przyrodniczo. Stąd bowiem wypływają źródła, które zaopatrują wyspę w wodę słodką, a więc źródlaną. Miejsce jest bardzo urokliwe i przyjemne latem, bowiem liczna tu zieleń nadaje przyjemny klimat i zieloną, bardzo naturalną kolorystykę miejsca. Miejsce nie do końca jest dziełem natury. Włoscy inżynierowie zbudowali tunel transportujący wodę z naturalnego źródła.
The building is 31.9 x 29.9 m in plan and 12 m high. In order to protect it from strong sun or rain, it was covered. The Odeon could accommodate 750 people in ancient times, for whom seats were spread over 14 rows. The first nine, restored, were divided by two passages with stairs. Further, the wider platform facilitated the audience's communication.
The stage was two-part and was the craftsmanship of architects. Its floor is decorated with marble and mosaic floors. There were three entrances for musicians, actors and orators, which are still noticeable today from a distance and constitute the front part of the theater.
Under the theater, there were communication routes in the form of two semicircular porticos, which led to a series of rooms serving as shops and workshops. Today they can be visited, the illuminated corridors are also nice because of the coolness that reigns here.
The whole building was surrounded by a thick stone wall, of which nothing has survived. In its niches there were a lot of marble statues.
The tunnels under the auditorium are a nice place for visitors
On one of the tables you can see what the odeon
looked like in the 2nd century AD.
The Odeon stage was adorned with a marble mosaic that is exposed to the public.
All you have to do is look to the right while you are at the top facing the audience.
There is an original floor under the roof.
The Odeon was discovered during the first phase of the excavation works in 1929 by the Italian archaeologist L. Laurenzi. Lots of statues and writings have been found here. Today they are housed in the Archaeological Museum in the center of Kos Town.
The most cherished souvenir is the marble statue of Hippocrates. Successive research phases brought new discoveries, also of objects around the thematic Roman theater. According to research, it was found that originally a public building used for public gatherings stood here, possibly serving as a bouleuterion. It was a building in Ancient Greece (started in the 4th century BC) based on a rectangular plan, to which led a courtyard with columned porches and a decorated entrance portal. Meetings of the City Council were held there.
Today, there is not even a trace of this building, you can only read on the information boards, many of which are located on the premises of the visited facility. It is worth seeing the Odeon, or musical theater, here from the reign of the Roman emperor Antonius Pius (137 ÷ 161). It was damaged in the earthquake in 142, but quickly repaired, as the Roman aristocracy highly valued art and the opportunity to meet during all cultural events.
Anyway, today there are also cultural events organized by the local authorities of the island.
