At the highest point of Patmos, in the western part of the island and south of Chora, the Hermitage of the Prophet Elias stands proud against the passage of time.

It was built by monk in 1764 at an altitude of 270 meters and is one of the places that you should visit, as from here your gaze will travel up to Lipsi, Leros and even Turkey.

To reach it from Chora, take the road towards Alykes and then turn right where you will find a signpost marked "Prophet Elias”.
