Patmos

4.1
Historic Sites · Landmarks · Beaches
Attracting religious pilgrims and wealthy jet set alike, Patmos is an island of contrasts. Best known for the so-called "Cave of the Apocalypse," where St. John the Theologian allegedly wrote the Book of Revelation, this small Aegean island is studded with hundreds of churches and shrines. The maze-like capital town of Chora was built around the fortress-like, 12th-century monastery that crowns the island's central hilltop. Numerous religious festivals allow you to experience the islands traditional and spiritual character on a Patmos vacation. Picturesque beaches, swimming coves, and whitewashed hilltop mansions built for the affluent elite underline the hedonistic side of Patmos. Arrange all the small, but important details of your Patmos trip itinerary using our Greece tour itinerary planning site.
