«Allotina» is a hidden neighborhood which includes seven picturesque houses in the east side of Patmos Island, almost two and a half kilometers from Skala. Among their main characteristics are their undisturbed sea views and their traditional decorative style, which is based in a palette of earthy shades. Their name is easily understood by the inhabitants of Patmos, since it is entirely related to the island’s history. «Allotina» was the name of the district created in Chora by the urban families who arrived in Patmos, after the fall of Constantinople in 1453. All houses were built around the Monastery of St. John the Theologian in such way, so that the residents could be protected from pirate raids. The Monastery, which used to operate as a castle in the past, preserves this aspect up to this day.
