Itinerary

Pick up at the port by our guide. The island of Patmos is located in the northwest corner of the Dodecanese archipelago in the Aegean Sea between the islands of Ikaria (also known as the island of longevity) and Leros. Once we arrive at the port of Skala, we will go to our first visit to the Monastery of Saint John, located at the top of the hill, in the middle of the picturesque white houses that form a surprising contrast under its imposing presence. It was established by Saint Christodoulos of Patmos, Servant of Christ, in 1088. It has thick walls crowned with a total of eight chapels. It houses a stone patio, with arches through which we can see the frescoes that adorn the entrance to the chapel. The museum has a magnificent collection of jewels, crowns and crosses. In addition, there are old writings dating back to 1073, icons and religious paintings, including an original by El Greco. We will continue the tour with the visit to the Grotto of the Apocalypse, built around the cave where Saint John lived for two years while writing the Apocalypse (dD 95/97). It is said that he received his revelation in this cave and there he wrote the last book of the New Testament. After this impressive visit, we will head towards Chora which is the village at the foot of the monastery, where you can enjoy free time to walk among the beautiful corridors and paths. At the end of the free time we will go to the port of Skala where our excursion will conclude. Return to the port and farewell
