PhotoPOSTcard: Patmos Island, Greece

Religious souvenirs on Patmos

Last Updated on 10/05/21 by Rose Palmer

The 3rd day of my sailing cruise with Running On Waves was to the lovely little island of Patmos. Patmos has all the things you would expect on a Greek island in the Aegean – beautiful beaches, crystal clear blue water and restaurants with great food. The island is also known as the location where John the Apostle received his visions in a cave that led him to write the Book of Revelation, the last book of the New Testament in the Bible. This has made Patmos an important Christian pilgrimage site. The cave, the Monastery of St. John the Theologian built in 1088, and the historic center of Chora became a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1999.

Thanks for visiting.
