About
This Private Shore excursion in Patmos is a great opportunity to visit the Grotto of the Apocalypse the frescoes to the left of the entrance portray the miracles and travels of St. John the Evangelist, as written by Prochorus, a supposed disciple. The fresco to the right of the entrance portrays St. John's battle with the priest of Apollo at Patmos, who the story says was called Kynops. St. John threw Kynops into the water of the harbor at Skala, and Kynops turned to stone. The rock is still pointed out as a local landmark in the harbor. The next visit is the Monastery of St. John and The Chapel of Virgin Mary: 12th century frescoes were uncovered by 1956 earthquake that shattered the 17th century coverings. You will walk at the narrow streets of Chora of Patmos and you will have a coffee break at Grikos Bay HIGHLIGHT: Monastery of Saint John & the Museum Cave of the Apocalypse Convent of Evangelismos Convent of Zoodochos Pigi & Museum Chora Town of patmos Grikos bay
