Known as the “Jerusalem of the Aegean,” Patmos is the location where Saint John the Apostle (also known as Saint John the Divine) was exiled and received a vision from God. This vision led to the book of Revelations in the New Testament. Today, the location of the prophecy, the Cave of Revelation/Apocalypse, is a sacred destination for many religious pilgrims. In addition to its biblical history, this Greek island boasts beautiful beaches, succulent seafood, and the whitewashed houses that are form the characteristic Aegean architecture.
