Monastery of St John the Theologian
Day 4

From deserted isle to place of pilgrimage

The port of Skala on Patmos will seem lively after the tranquillity of waking up in Marathi… This island has been a destination of note for hundreds of years. Recently, of course, it’s tourists who have flocked here, but long before them, it was Christian pilgrims who made their way here.

It is said that St John was inspired by visions received here to write the Book of Revelations… Some still come to the huge monastery of St John the Theologian, and the lovely whitewashed village of Hora that encircles it.
