Patmos Things to Do: 21 reviews and 55 photos

The Monastery and Grotto of St. John were primarily the only main attractions of this island. Gifts were fairly expensive but very sentimental and heartfelt. A service was being given in the grotto, and we were able to sit in as long as we wanted. After spending some time there, we walked up to the monastery. It is on top of the hill, so be sure if you visit to wear good walking shoes. It's a hike, but definitely worth it! The views inside are amazing!
