INFORMATION ABOUT AEGINA

Aegina is a beautiful Greek island in the Saronic Gulf. As it is located in close distance to Athens, it serves as a nice weekend destination.

Aegina has bright sunshine almost all year round. Its blue sea water, the mountains covered with pine trees, the long beaches and picturesque villages in the countryside create a nice atmosphere for nature lovers. The carriages drawn by horses that make the tour of Aegina Town give a bit of romance to the island.

The history of the island is long. The Greek mythology depicts that, at earlier times, king of the island was Aecus the son of Zeus and a nymph named Aegina, after whom the island was named. The island was inhabited by Minoans and Dorians but it reached its peak when the Athenians made it a naval base in the 5th century B.C. This was when many beautiful temples were built and the settlements developed economically. With the fall of Athens, the island also declined and followed the course of the rest of Greece.

The capital is Aegina Town. The harbor where ferries and fishing boats moor dominate this beautiful town. Many taverns and cafeterias line the port. In summer, many yachts come to spend the night there before they continue their trip to the open Aegean. Close to the capital, there is the archaeological site of Kolona, a ruined ancient temple that was dedicated to god Apollo but today only a column of it has remained.

The most famous sight of Aegina is the temple of Athena Aphaia, a well-preserved ancient structure in the centre of the island. This temple was built in the 5th century B.C. in Doric style.

The most popular beach resorts of Aegina are Agia Marina and Souvala. Both located on the northern side, they have many accommodation options close by and their beaches are clean and organized. Their relaxing vibe attracts a lot of tourists every year.
