Dodecanese Patmos Leros Nisyros Kalymnos

Patmos

For many years, this island was a place of pilgrimage for the Catholics and the Orthodox. In the sixties, Patmos became for a while a favourite destination for hippies, who wanted to experience the spiritual vibes of the island.

It is famous for its religious past, since it is in Patmos that Saint John the Divine wrote the Book of Revelation (the Apocalypse). From the island's prior isolation and religiousness only the imposing Monastery of Saint John and the signs forbidding nude bathing and topless remain.

Today, this mountainous island and its small coves attract sun lovers who wish to dive in its crystalline waters.
