Nestled in the rocky slopes of the mountains island, Pátamos sits the town of Chorá. The pristine white of the Cycladic houses against the cloudless marine blues from both above and below are almost reason enough to make this beautiful town a world heritage site, but a much deeper history enriches this town. The ancient site Chorá has a long standing history in the Christian community. It has been disputed that in the area of this settlement, Saint John the Theologian, the ‘Beloved Disciple’,  wrote two of the most important biblical documents, his gospel and the Book Of the Apocalypse. Today the grand structure of the Monastery of Hagios Ioannis Theologos and the Cave of the apocalypse  sit within this town and serve as an important pilgrimage center for the Greek Orthodox. 

 
Aside from Chorá’s important biblical ties, this settlement is one of the few in the world that has evolved uninterrupted since the 12th century. Religious practices held centuries ago are still going on in 2014 and beyond. This isn’t to say that the Greek Islands, including Pátamos,  haven’t been raided, captured, ruled and traded. Pátamos was first colonized by the Ionian Greeks and was soon absorbed into the Roman Empire in around 95 AD where it was used as a house for political prisoner. This is how Saint John the Theologian ended up on the Island of Pátamos. In 1208, the Ventians captured the settlement where modern day Pátamos lies and ruled the island nation until the Turks took over in the 16th Century where both Pátamos and Chorá flourished as a central Mediterranean trade hub.
