A perfect picture from down below, of a whitewashed village perched on a hilltop, crowned by a castle (that is the monastery of St John). Buses run a few times a day from the port in Skala - it's only a few kilometres but a...More

We really enjoyed walking through the narrow streets in Chora. A lot of gift shops offering quality items, Cafés and restaurants. No cars allowed, therefore everyone was chatting and enjoying the beautiful view of Patmos from high above. There are a couple of ‘crowded’ streets...More

Lovely walk up to Chora on the 'old' cobbled road. Quaint whitewashed houses and narrow alleyways. Some good shops and restaurants. Quiet (very few tourists on mid-June). Monastery is lovely and the museum has some wonderful old artefacts.

Despite the tourism, Chora still stays a beautiful island village. Most of the house have kept their character, the arcades, the streets, the paths, the churches, the view from all sides of it... you can walk for hours and shoot hundreds of photos. I strongly...More

The city as a fairy tale ... beautiful narrow streets in which you can be lost but also found, I recommend to anyone who loves the past and travel through time ...
