Patmos On World Heritage List

The Dodecanese island of Patmos, its St John Monastery and its Cave of Revelation have gained international recognition following their inclusion in Unesco’s World Heritage listing.

As a result, all housing on the island is protected and thus any alterations or renovations must be first approved by the state archaeological service.

The decision to add Patmos to the list was achieved through a cooperation between the island’s municipality and the state’s Byzantine antiquities department. As well, it has the full support of the St John monastery’s clergy.

The listing should produce an increased sense of responsibility towards the difficult work involved in protecting and conserving the island’s traditional housing while meeting the needs of residents.
