St. John left Patmos from Petra rock

St. John left Patmos from Petra rock

When the emperor Domitian was assasinated in Rome, Saint John was able to go back to Ephesus as Christian persecution came to an end. He left the island from the area where the Petra rock is located.

The rock became a place for hermit in the past.

Today is basically a beach that get busy in summer.
