After having breakfast at our hotel in Vagia we decided to follow the path through the hills that leads to the ancient Aphaia temple.... what an amazing place. You can actually feel the energy... only by thinking what humans are capable of... in a good way.

Doric beauty at its finest. Simple and "heavy". Built around 510 B.C and still has the power to shock you with pleasure. Local bus gets you right outside.

We were advised to visit this ancient temple as the #1 thing on the island we should do. We started from our hotel in Vagia, and with the instructions of our host we walked through pine trees to get to the temple. We feel verry lucky we did so.

If you are going to Aegina, this is a must see. We were day tripping from Athens. I had wanted to rent a bike and ride there but was told it was too far. It may have been possible but certainly would have been a long trip. We rented quads instead. It was a fantastic ride there. The climb up... More

This is a great site to visit, with a very interesting museum and nice views of the island as well. I would recommend walking up from Aegina Marina as you see some beautiful nature along the way and are spoilt with views of the island. Then when at the top stop for some delicious Pistachio ice cream.

This temple is something special! It was built around 510 BC after the first temple was destroyed in war. It is still amazing that the Greeks were able to build these structures so many though sands of years ago! There is a great museum that is on the property and gives a lot of insight and detail to the temple!... More

We visited as a familly the temple following the path though the pine forest. We started from Vagia Hotel in Vagia which is a fishing village nested in pine forest. It took us about an hour walk through nature to reach this amazing peace of Civilization. The energy was strong and we certainly felt proud of what humans are capable... More

The temple of Aphaea is a large preserve beautiful temple. The architectural and history of the temple is amazing. The sight from the temple is very beautiful looking outward/downward from ontop of the mountain; stunning views. Very interesting, impressive and worth the visit.
