Cave of the Apocalypse

This sacred grotto in Patmos, Greece is the ancient place where St. John had visions and is located halfway up the mountain on the island. These visions led to the Book of Revelation. Visit the Cave of the Apocalypse on foot through the historic trail that bridges Skala and Patmos Island. Inside the cave is a sacred site; a foundation of the Christian tradition, the rock is ragged with three small fissures which symbolize the Holy Trinity, and the voice of God was heard and dictated to Saint John the text of the Revelation. The cave entrance is decorated with a mosaic and inside you’ll find a small grotto. There are also writings about the visions in the cave area.

Visiting Greece is a historical journey through early human history. There are dozens of important sites to see. Spend your time at each one, but be sure to balance your schedule to include as many as possible. A longer vacation may be beneficial to enjoy more of the historical places in Greece.

Meteora

Many people come here and claim that being in Meteora is like being on another planet entirely. Rock pillars shoot up into the sky (up to 1200 ft.) from the otherwise flat landscape. Monasteries here are perched delicately atop high cliffs where monks and nuns worship. There were originally 24 monasteries, but only six have stood the test of time. The six monasteries are built on natural sandstone rock pillars, at the northwestern edge of the Plain of Thessaly. Access to the monasteries was originally (and deliberately) difficult, requiring either long ladders lashed together or large nets used to haul up both goods and people, but now thousands of tourists visit each year. The rock pillars were formed approximately 60 million years ago by earthquakes and weathering. This is a very popular hiking spot for those who want to see the monasteries while also getting exercise. Architecture here compliments the dramatic landscapes. Meteora is a massive historical site and on the UNESCO list.  The summer months can be brutally hot, while winter months are very cold. Visit here in the early summer, spring or late summer as temperatures drop.
