Radiating an aura of sacredness and rare natural beauty, Patmos captivates the cultured traveler with its picturesque Chora town built
above a hill, the transcendental Cave of the Apocalypse, and its artistic crowd. Tradition reveals that Patmos is the island where John
the Apostle received the vision of the Revelation from God and dictated the final book of the Bible to his student, Prochoros. The
island's religious importance is so great that many monks and hermits settled on its hills and coasts over the years. The most prominent
and inspiring religious monument is the monastery of St John the Theologian. An impressive fort-like monastery founded in the year
1088 AD and is a protected UNESCO World Heritage Site. The island's only port is in Skala. From here, you can hop on a traditional
caïque or charter a sailing yacht and explore remote beaches, the nearby island of Leipsoi, and the charming archipelago around Arkoi
island. Patmos is an unspoiled sophisticated retreat for those who seek calm, fine beaches, exquisite 17th-century architecture, and
laid-back chic vibes.
