The place is worth a visit just to admire the beautiful view of the island from high above. The chapel was closed so we couldn't visit it, but the view is compelling!

Incredible panorama from Patmos' highest spot. On a clear day you can see not only the neighboring islands but even some of the cyclades islands. The chapel does not seem to be accessible.

The chapel is at the highest altitude of Patmos island. The view is stunning and you can enjoy beautiful sunset scene. Just take a jacket with you because it can be windy and cold.

Magnificent view a very nice place and a very nice Small church. You can see all nearby islands if the weather is clear and enjoy a spectacular view of Icacrian see

Amazing view from this church, that can be reached by scooter, car or feet. Always remember that you're visiting a sacred place. So, even if it's not important for you, maybe it's important for the locals.

You can drive your car to this place but I would not go there by bike or motorbike because the 1km final road is extremely steep and narrow. But just the view is extremely rewarding all the same. It makes you wander away on silence...

From the mountain of Profitis Ilias, you will get a view to Khora in one direction, Petra in another and the bay of Stavros with Diakofti beach in a third. You can also look down to the beautiful convent of the Annunciation or Evangelismos nunnery,...More
