What makes Aegina island unique? Is it its proximity to Athens, just an hour by boat from Piraeus? Or its rich history, vibrant light that inspires artists, and stunning turquoise waters? Perhaps it’s the famous pistachios and delicious seafood that you can enjoy right by the sea. It’s all these things and more, with hidden secrets that make Aegina truly special!

It’s fascinating how an island can encapsulate the entire history of Greece! Just a breath away from Aegina’s port, the Kolona and the 6th century BC Temple of Apollo stand proudly. A stroll through the town’s narrow streets transports you to the Venetian era via the Tower of Markellos. The Kapodistrian buildings, including the Governor’s House, testify to Aegina’s role as the first capital of modern Greece, guiding you through recent Greek history.

Feel the incredible energy of the Temple of Aphaia, built in 500-490 BC, forming two imaginary isosceles triangles: one with the Temple of Poseidon at Sounio and the Temple of Hephaestus in Thiseio, and another with the Temple of Apollo at Delphi and the Parthenon.

Christians will love Aegina, as it is home to numerous monasteries that offer a serene atmosphere, stunning architecture, and beautiful landscapes. The Monastery of Saint Nektarios stands on a hill, in the medieval village of Paleochora, 6 km from the main town. It was named after its founder, the monk Nektarios who lived in the monastery until his death in 1920. A place of profound spiritual significance and unparalleled beauty, drawing visitors from near and far to experience its tranquil atmosphere and architectural splendor. Nestled amidst picturesque surroundings, this revered monastery offers a sanctuary for reflection and prayer, inviting individuals to immerse themselves in moments of introspection and serenity. With its rich history and deep-rooted traditions, the monastery provides a glimpse into the spiritual heritage of Greece, while its striking architecture and scenic vistas captivate the senses.

Swim and sunbathe at Marathonas beach and if the sky is clear, you will see the islands of Moni, Methana, and Agistri. Being a fishing village, the numerous tavernas serve exquisite freshly cooked seafood along with other traditional Greek cuisine.
