HALF-DAY PRIVATE PATMOS Three Monasteries TOUR (B05)

You shall be picked up from the Patmos Scala Cruise Port and your Patmos guide will hold up a sign with your name on it so you can easily find your allocated tour guide and transfer service for the day.  This Patmos tour will take about 4 hours and after the tour will drive you back to  Patmos Scala Cruise Port.

Convent of Evangelismos, Monastery of St. John, Monastery’s museum, The Cave of the Apocalypse

This tour gives an inside look at monastic life and takes you to the most important Orthodox sites on the island. We leave the port of Skala by coach taking the coastal road to the Convent of Evangelismos which lies in a beautiful setting surrounded by well-kept gardens with a spectacular view over the bay of Kipi. The original chapel of St. Luke dates from 1613 and the Convent itself was founded in 1937. We have the opportunity to see a wonderful collection of frescoes painted by the nun Olympia who died within the last decade. This large Convent is a wonderful example of ecclesiastical architecture and houses an exhibition where examples of handicrafts made by the nuns can be purchased. We then take the coach to the old village of Chora where we will visit the Monastery of St. John the Theologian built in the 11th century. Here one can get a glimpse of monastic life and absorb timeless stories through the magnificent ecclesiastical artifacts of its museum. Among the Monastery’s treasures are frescoes of the founder Christodoulos and miracles of St. John, ancient documents dating from the 6th century, vestments, silverware, and numerous icons including a work attributed to El Greco.

After a short coach ride, we arrive at the Cave of the Apocalypse - home to the birth of the Book of Revelation, the last book in the Holy Bible. In 95AD, at the time of the persecution of the Christians, St. John was exiled to the Island of Patmos where the vision of the Revelation was revealed to him in this small cave which has now become a place of worship and an important destination for pilgrims. Our tour finishes at the port of Skala.
