In Aegina’s main town, referred to as “the center” by locals, pink and white houses cluster around the harbor. Orchards of pistachios, almonds, and olives, small villages, the last remnants of ancient ruins, and tiny white chapels adorn the hillsides. There are some interesting 13th century churches – one underground, and one completely covered inside with frescoes – and the impressive remains of Aphaia Temple crown the summit of a wooded hill with panoramic views. You might not guess it, but will no doubt hear, that this sleepy little isle has had its moments of glory, however fleeting.
