Patmos is known as the holy island of the Revelation and as the Jerusalem of the Aegean. It has been famous since early Christian times because St. John the Evangelist, wrote the Apocalypse while in exile here between AD 95 and 97. In the 11th century, the Monk Christodoulos founded a Monastery in honour of St. John.
The visit to the Monastery of Agios Ioannis Theologos and the Cave of the Revelation is an extraordinary experience. Today Patmos attracts thousands of visitors from all over the world. They come not only as pilgrims to the land where the Book of Revelations was written but also as holiday-makers intent on enjoying the island’s unique natural beauties.
