EMBARK ON A SPIRITUAL VOYAGE TO HISTORIC PATMOS
There is no missing the Monastery of St. John, a massive dark fortress atop a hill, standing out against the traditional white houses of the village of Hora that surround it. It was constructed in the late 11th century to honor St. John the Divine, who is said to have had his apocalyptic vision while in Patmos, leading him to write the Book of Revelation. The monastery is a warren of interconnecting courtyards, arcades, galleries, and roof terraces. There are lovely chapels, some with 12th century frescoes. The treasury exhibits an impressive array of art, and the library contains a wealth of historic texts.Download An Explorer Guide +
