Near the ancient market of Kos and very close to the castle is a huge Nerantzia Tree of Hippocrates. It is said that Hippocrates himself and planted in the shade he taught his disciples. Hippocrates became known throughout the ancient world and beyond the borders of Greece, when he saved Athens from a cholera epidemic. Though 2400 years have passed the tree and still turns out new branches and green leaves. As the tree can not hold back, now, the weight placed around the tree pillars. Next to the tree are two fountains dating from the time of Othomanikis Empire.
