Island of Patmos

The island of Patmos is the island where the Apostle John wrote the book of Revelation. It is believed  that he wrote it while living in a cave on the island. We got to visit the cave but since they have built a church inside the cave we weren't allowed to take pictures. 

Patmos is beautiful. The colors in these photographs are very realistic of the true colors. The water is unbelievably blue and crystal clear. 

 There is a monastery built on the top of the island. One of the oldest monasteries dating back to the 300s. 

 I couldn't believe the water. The color is stunning. 

We finished off our day we a beautiful sunset over Patmos as seen from our boat.
