Patmos island is one of the smallest inhabited islands of the Aegean. Patmos, is incredibly beautiful. It is the island where Saint John the Theologian, exiled, and wrote his Apokalypse (Revelation). In 1995, the 1900 years since the writing of this prophetical holy book, were commemorated. The impressive stone monastery dominates majestically over most of the island, inviting you to approach it with respect, wonder and awe.
The most important attraction naturally will be the fortress - like monastery of St John (tel.: 22470 31398), built in 1088 by the monk Christodoulos. Many priceless treasures are housed in its sacristy. Also in Hora, there is an Ecclesiastical Museum. Halfway between Hora and Skala (the island’s port) there is the Grotto of the Apocalypse, where the Revelation was written by John the Evangelist. At the mouth of the cave you will see the church of Aghia Anna and at a short distance from there, the famous Patmias school is located. At the Patmos shops you find reasonably priced porcelain, crystal and silver items. The Patmian embroidery is famous for its elegance.
