Religious Aegina is a day hiking tour available as self guided or guided. On this hike we eplore great monasteries, medieval settlements and more!

Your exploration begins at the imposing monastery of St. Nektarios! Thousands of Christians from around the world come to pay their respects every year. Right across the hill, lie the ruins of Paliahora, the island’s medieval settlement where about 35 stone chapels still survive.
