Aegina Overview

Aegina is a verdant island known for its great production of colourful pistachios. The Greek Island has a lovely capital full of fine neoclassical buildings and narrow alleys where one can enjoy fresh fish and excellent appetizers in the taverns of the fish market, in the heart of the town.

According to mythology, Aegina was a beautiful princess with whom Zeus fell in love with. In order to be alone with her, he took her to this uninhabited island, and they had a son, Aeacus, who became the first king.

Another architectural wonder of this island is the ruined temple of Aphaia that dominates the beauty of the rocky mountain.
