The Cave of the Apocalypse

Exploring Patmos Sailing Holidays area Add The Cave of the Apocalypse to favorites Add The Cave of the Apocalypse to your Points of Interest

In the year 96AD in a small cavern on Patmos Island Apostle St. John had a vision. His student, Prohoros, wrote down this vision by order of the Lord, and it is known as the 27th and final chapter of the Holly Bible. Entering the cavern you realise its natural positioning and why the Lord picked this particular place in the world to reveal the Apocalypse. The rock formation is volcanic and rare, taking 100's of years to cool off, it shines at some points from the water that was trapped in it without vaporising. To the right there is the sacred cave and church of Saint John the Divine. In the centre between the cave and the chapel the low rock ceiling reaches out in clear threefold split, the sign of the Holly Trinity.
