The architecture of the island of Kos shows signs of the influence of
foreigners who invaded on several occasions, such as fountains and Muslim
mosques and buildings dating back to the Italian and Venetian domination in
particular. The most significant examples of traditional architecture are the
villages of Asfendiou, Pyli, Kefalos and Antimahia and the various mills that
dot the island, making the landscape even more fascinating.
The white stone houses with flat roofs, doors and windows in bright colors are typical of the architectural style of Kos, as well as the narrow paved pathways.
