HALF DAY PRIVATE PATMOS Scenic TOUR (A03)
|Duration: 2 hours description: Cave of Apocalypse, Windmills, Patmos landscape, Grikos
Cave of the Apocalypse (1 hour)
Wandering in Chora (1 hour)
Photo-stop at the Windmills
Tour of the island (Groikos)
The first part of the trip is the visit to the Cave of the Apocalypse, where the beloved disciple of Jesus Christ, John, was exiled in 95 AD and found refuge in a Grotto located on the hill between Skala and Chora. St. John wrote the divinely inspired book of Revelation within two years.
Today, the visitor can see the place where the Apocalypse was written, the place where St John lived, the huge rock that was torn when God dictated the Apocalypse, the place where the Evangelist rested his head, and the spot where he was placing his hand to help himself get up.
Then we will ascend from the Cave to the medieval settlement of Chora and we will wander in its labyrinthine alleys. The panoramic view of the island is revealed in every turn between the buildings of Chora, built between the 15th and 18th centuries. Then, we will head to the Windmills, which were built in 1588 and reconstructed in 2010. From that spot, one can admire Skala, the entire northern part of the island, and all the neighboring islands (weather permitting).
We will continue to the southern part of the island and head to the picturesque settlement of Groikos, which won international awards as one of the most beautiful bays in the world in 2010. In the last part of the excursion, we will return to Skala for refreshments and finally, we will end up at the port.
