Patmos is an island of Dodecanese and lies between Samos, Leros and Ikaria, close to the Turkish coasts. It is a relatively small island but its astonishing beauty and religious interest make it a pole of attraction for hundreds of pilgrims and tourists. Patmos is the place where Saint John wrote the Book of Revelation (Apocalypse) and a unique pilgrimage site for the Catholics and Orthodox.
Today, the island is dominated by the Castle-Monastery of Saint John which creates a great antithesis with the typical whitewashed character of Chora. Because of its strong religious roots, Patmos remains a sacred place where thousands of pilgrims find shelter. However, it is open to tourism as visitors enjoy the golden sandy beaches, traditional atmosphere and natural beauties.
