History of Patmos emerges from the ancient years. The island where Apostle John wrote the Apocalypse.
A rather mystical and threatening book which supposes to reveal the last days of humanity, judged by God.

The book itself can be a Hollywood film by it’s own. A rather horrific film. However, and for the traveler’s shake, the island of Patmos located in Aegean little has in common with these apocalyptic words.
It has one common though…
The island of Patmos is a place to explore in order to have the marvels and secrets revealed in full length and depth.
Visitors who really love such religious (and respected leisure destinations) will find most interesting the Cave of the Apocalypse, where St. John wrote the Holy Book as well as the Holy Monastery of Apocalypse which was originally build as a castle.
Easter in Patmos is also magnificent (as well as in other parts of Greece), but there were the religious element is extremely high is a unique experience.
The experience balances between deep religious feelings and witnessing the acts of pilgrims made to God if Him fulfills their wishes.
Of course apart from the religious factor the island has very good beaches with thin sand (some accessible only by boat, thankfully) and excellent villages to taste local food and local wines.
In total, we can say that Patmos attracts religious and also sophisticated people and those who seek “quite” vacations.
