Pátmos : Michelin's recommendations
Also known as Hóra, Pátmos Town is made up of houses of all different sizes, with the oldest probably dating back to the 16C. Together they form a charming maze of stairways and alleys. Sights not to be missed include the Simandiris House which presents a combination of the oriental tradition and the western fashions favoured in the 19C; the Zoodóhos Pigí convent with its little flower-filled courtyards; Platía Lozia, from where there is a beautiful view of the Monastery of the Apocalypse on the hill and of Skála harbour.
