With a population of 2,998 residents and a size of 34.05 square km, Patmos is an ideal destination both for pilgrimage tourism as well as for nature lovers. Its lace-like coastline, sheer cliffs and volcanic soil compose an idyllic landscape for your summer holidays.

Designated as “Holy Island” by the Greek Parliament in 1981 and as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1999, Patmos had been used as a place of exile by the Romans due to its steep morphology. That’s how St. John found safe refuge in the 1st century A.D., exiled by the Emperor Domitian and wrote the Book of Revelation (in 95 A.D.).
