Do not only visit the cave at daytime, but make sure you visit the theatre at night (enjoy one of the special music events) and see nighttime Patmos behind the stage. Just amazing!
If visiting the Holy island of Patmos then one must visit The Cave of The Apocalypse where tradition holds that St John received his vision from Christ that he recorded in the Book of Revelation. It is in a beautiful location on the way to the Monastery of St John the Theologian, also worth a visit. About 50 steps of... 更多
This is a must. It is no longer a cave but a delightful little chapel. With a bit of imagination you can envisage the cave as it was with a fabulous view of Skala. The steep steps require careful negotiation but it is worth the effort. Top tip: don't go as part of a coach party it would be too... 更多

There is very little to see from our point of view but from a religious person who wants to see it would be good. We had a great walk down the hill from the monastery and then picked up the bus.

Well worth the visit you can either catch the bus from the town square or hike up if you are fit . It is a very interesting historic site where John wrote the book of revaluations . There are quite a few steep stairs to get down to the cave .
