Overview of Ancient monuments
A must starting point is the 5th century BC temple of Aphea (daughter of Zeus), Aegina’s sightseeing highlight and one of the best preserved archaeological sites in Greece. Situated on a pine tree hill, it offers great views of the Argosaronic and a small museum. Next stop is the Temple of Apollo, where one Doric column, among other ruins, reminds its past glory. Last but not least, the Archaeological Museum of Aegina is one of the most worth seeing museums among all Greek islands. It lies at the Kolona archaeological site and it was founded in 1829 by Ioannis Kapodistrias.
