Agios Ioannis o en Krimno (Saint-John on the cliff)


This small church is located on a cliff 60 m high above Kapsali. It was built in a hollowed-out space in the cliff, and there are two cells and a kitchen in the cave above. These constructions were joined to the church in the 17th century, and this small monastery was renovated in 1725 as mentioned by the inscription on the way in. According to the legend this is where St. John started writing the Apocalypse before making his way to the island of Patmos.
