Patmos: Remote, untouched, an artist's revelation

With a population of 3000 and an area of 34.05 km2, Patmos is one of the islands of the Dodecanese complex and is most famous for being the location where St. John wrote the Bible's Book of Revelation. While the fortified 10th-century Monastery dominates the scenery, Patmos’ calming atmosphere and views to the Aegean make it an ideal destination for those seeking either inspiration or a quiet retreat. Between the lace-like coastline and the whitewashed houses, Patmos’ international community of artists, writers, filmmakers and musicians celebrates its detachment in a cinematic way.
