Attracting religious pilgrims and wealthy jet set alike, Patmos is an island of contrasts. Best known for the so-called "Cave of the Apocalypse," where St. John the Theologian allegedly wrote the Book of Revelation, this small Aegean island is studded with hundreds of churches and shrines. The maze-like capital town of Chora was built around the fortress-like, 12th-century monastery that crowns the island's central hilltop. Numerous religious festivals allow you to experience the islands traditional and spiritual character on a Patmos vacation. Picturesque beaches, swimming coves, and whitewashed hilltop mansions built for the affluent elite underline the hedonistic side of Patmos. Patmos is in Dodecanese.
