Antimachia

Antimachia: At a distance of 23 kilometers southwestern to the town of Kos. It is a traditional village of the agricultural inland of the island, found on a plateau not very high.

Antimachia is an ancient settlement, found at the same place and holding the same name for more than three thousand years. There are many places worth seeing at the village and in the area around.

At a distance of 4 kilometers Northeastern to the village, via a good dirt track, you may see the ruins of the Medieval Castle, built in the 14th century by the order of the Knights of St. John, who also dominated the neighboring island of Rodos . Parts of the external strong walls, some castle-like houses and some cisterns are some of the constructions preserved. You may also see the old churches of Aghios Nicolaos (14th century) and of Aghia Paraskevi (18th century), both of them well enough preserved.

At Mastihari, you will see the ruins of the Early Christian Basilica, with a very nice mosaic floor.

Several alternatives for accommodation are available, within the settlement and in the area around. Lodgings are open from April or May until October and most of them offer full facilities.

Food is good in the taverns of the village, but more popular are the fish taverns in Mastihari, which, along with the delicious fresh fish, also offer a good variety of local delicacies.

Swimming is possible at the beach of Mastihari, the port of Antimachia. The beach is well organized and offers facilities for swimming, sunbathing and sea sports to the visitors.

Apart from its history and the nice landscape, Antimachia is well known for the openhearted locals. The residents of the village are famous as very good dancers and singers; the village has some of the best folk musicians all over Greece. They are also known for their ability to improvise verses, satirical in most cases. Thus, if you are on the island during the period of Carnival, do not miss to attend the Carnival events at Antimachia. You will certainly remember it long after!

The most important event of the village is the feast of Honey, taking place in late August; apart from dancing, singing and enjoying yourself, you will also have the chance to taste the very good honey of the area, along with a variety of sweets, based on this excellent product of the village.

Another important and interesting event that everybody expects, is the Wine Festival taking place in early September: you will taste abundant local wine, along with delicacies from the local kitchen and you will enjoy yourself with Greek music and dance, which lasts until the next morning.
