Blessed with natural beauty, Patmos is a small and sacred island, known worldwide as the place where Saint John wrote the Book of Apocalypse. The most important archaeological findings were traced in the region of Kasteli and bear witness to the first flourishing period of the island, during the 4th century BC.
Considering the religious significance of Patmos, the island is home to a well-equipped Ecclesiastical Museum which lies in the Monastery of Saint John. Its varied collection consists of many vessels and jewelry, handmade vestments, holy icons, and rare books.
At the center of Chora, guests can visit the Folklore Museum of Patmos which highlights the traditional aspect of the island through a great collection of old-fashioned items like family relics, paintings, photos, and other items. The museum is housed in a 17th-century mansion.
