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.

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.
