Elder Amphilochios Makris as the Founder of the Convent of the Annunciation in Patmos

The Convent of the Annunciation, or Evangelismos, is situated on the southwest side of Hora overlooking the Bay of Kypos.

The convent started off as a small chapel with a hermitage, until 1613 when Nikephoros, an abbot from the Monastery of Saint John the Theologian, renovated the building and dedicated it to Luke the Evangelist.
