Ancient Kamiros, is situated half the way down the island on the west coast road. It is one of the most important archeological sites in whole Greece. The city was developed by the Dorians. Kamiros flourished 600 years before Christ. It was a largely affirming community. You can see the entire layout of the town, which was constructed in the style of an Amphitheatre. It is a site of spectacular ruins, giving an excellent idea of the layout of the original city. From the acropolis and the temple at the top down through the posh houses to the poorer areas next to the marketplace and ending up at the bath houses. Sit and watch the sunset while gazing across the Aegean from the ruins.
