The old traditional village of Asfendiou is situated at a distance of 14 kilometers southwestern to the town of Kos, at the mountainside of mountain Dikaio, within an environment with luxuriant green. It is a small village, counting some 100 permanent residents.

The village that flourished for a century, from 1850 to 1940, thanks to viniculture and olive-crop, is very interesting for its architecture. It is composed by two quarters, Evangelistria or Pera Ghitonia and Assomatos.

Once in the village, it is worth seeing the church of Assomati Taxiarhes, built in the 11th century, with a very nice wood carved icon screen; just off the village you will see the ruins of the Early Christian basilica of Aghios Pavlos (St. Paul).
