We will depart early in the morning for Knidos. Cnidus was quite a developed city in the fields of science, art and architecture. Eudoxos, a very popular astronomer and maths professor, Dr. Euryphon, Polygontos, a popular artist Skopas and Bryaksis of Faros, the most famous sculptors of the era, Sostrates, the architect of Alexandrian light house one of the seven wonders of the world and Ktesias the doctor, who saved the life of a Persian king from a disaster lived on this island. Dr.Euryphon and his students founded the second biggest medical science school in Knidos. The island also hosts the largest sun clock of its time which was erected by Eudoksos. Knidos was the home for Aphrodite's monument and in those times the city was famous for brothels and became popular amongst sailors and Arabic tradesmen. You may also take a walk on the shore to see the ruins.
A nice swimming break will be available here.
