Patmos Greece

The literal translation of Dodecanese is "Twelve Islands" although there are 16 inhabited ones and up to 27 in total.

Dodecanese have a distinct character and architecture due to successive rulers - Venetian, Ottoman and Italian while the formal incorporation of the Dodecanese into Greece came in 1948.
