The Greek Islands

Patmos

One of the smallest inhabited islands of the Aegean, Patmos , is incredibly beautiful. It is the island where Saint John the Theologian , while exiled there, had a vision and in 1995 the 1900 years - since the writing of his Apocalypse (Revelation) - were commemorated. The rich history, the Byzantine tradition of many centuries, the natural environment, the traditional architecture of the settlements, the excellent microclimate, the hospitable disposal of the residents, are certain some of the reasons that travellers prefer Patmos .
