Patmos is a small yet very special island in the Dodecanese. It is hard to get to, and this is the very reason it remains unspoiled. Its small size allows you to come in touch with your human nature, exploring yourself as you explore the island.
"The island of the Apocalypse" is reputed to be where St John the Theologian wrote both his Gospel and the Book of Revelation. The medieval stone-built settlement of Chorá is centered around the 10th century Monastery with its imposing fortifications. In pre-Byzantine times, the "acropolis" of the island was dedicated to Artemis, the goddess of the hunt, wilderness, and the moon.
