Patmos, the Jerusalem of the Aegean
Patmos, a small island of the Dodecanese, is a popular destination due to its religious significance. Patmos is the place where Saint John wrote his Apocalypse – and you can visit the exact spots where he did! The world-heritage listed monastery of Saint John and the holy cave of the Apocalypse are open to the public and waiting for you to discover them. But Patmos is an ideal destination not only for the religiously motivated and culturally inclined. The sun worshippers will also find Patmos to be quite appealing. The unspoiled sandy white beaches, with the brightest example of Psili Ammos, and the crowded but picturesque main town of Patmos, Skala, are yet another reason to consider traveling to Patmos.
