Gigantic Well Preserved Temple Sep 28, 2011
If you have been to the Parthenon at Acropolis in Athens and have seen its glory, or if you happened to visit the Temple of Poseidon along the amazing scenic Cape of Sounio, then you might say you don't need to see anymore the Temple of Aphaia in Aegina, as they are all somewhat similar.

Well, temples are temples, ruins are ruins, and they are all just reminiscence of ancient times. But another good thing on this temple is its strategic location. This gigantic Doric temple is geographically located at the top of a pine-clad hill with an overlooking view of the sea and the surrounding coast. Despite the ruins, the temple is still impressive and is majestically preserved.

Another interesting fact is that, this temple of Aphaia and the temple of Poseidon have the same distances to the Parthenon - the three temples thus formed an isosceles triangle.

Well, going to the temple is so easy. The bus from Aegina port to Agia Marina stops at the temple. The ticket office and the bus departure point is just across the port.
