The Historic Centre (Chorá) with the Monastery of Saint-John - Greece

The small island of Pátmos in the Dodecanese is reputed to be where St John the Theologian wrote both his Gospel and the Apocalypse. 
A monastery dedicated to the ‘beloved disciple’ was founded there in the late 10th century and it has been a place of pilgrimage and Greek Orthodox learning ever since. 
The fine monastic complex dominates the island. 
The old settlement of Chorá, associated with it, contains many religious and secular buildings.
