Patmos

Patmos Island in the Dodecanese, is best known as the place where divine visions inspired Saint John to write the Book of Revelation in the Holy Cave of the Apocalypse. Designated as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, Patmos is a cultural and religious center with the monastery of St. John to loom over the island. The towering monastery was established in 1088 and still contains original structures dating to the 11th century.

But holidaymakers visit Patmos not only for its religious landmarks but also for its authentic Greek charm. Despite being a tiny island, it is packed with things to see and do. Chora is a labyrinth of narrow alleyways with picturesque little squares filled with traditional tavernas where you can enjoy flavorsome and homemade Greek food. Skala is the port and a trade and commercial hub filled with lovely sites and several shops with tasteful souvenirs and beautiful summer clothes. There are paths snaking through the hills of the island and untouched beaches with amazing aqua blue water. Do not miss to tour the windmills up in the hills and enjoy panoramic views of the island or take part in one of the many feasts that take place throughout the year and are accompanied by traditional eating, drinking and dancing. Moreover, Patmos is a perfect destination for nature lovers thanks to unrivalled nature, sheer cliffs and volcanic soil.
