Aegina Temple of Aphaia

A guided tour from the port of Aegina to the Temple of Aphaia
The ancient Temple of Aphaia* is a special place. It stands in a beautiful spot above the pine forests in the hills of Aegina, with fabulous views across the Saronic Gulf. You can wander among the bleached sandstones, and imagine yourself there 2500 years ago when the surviving temple was built, or among the first known worshippers another thousand years before that.
Aphaia is well preserved and restored, and historically important, so it is hardly surprising that it is one of the island’s most popular tourist sites. But there are also some intriguing myths and mysteries, which are not so well known.
