Temple of Aphaia, Aegina
Visit Temple of Aphaia to see a Hellenistic temple built around 500 BCE in honor of the goddess Aphaia. The temple was built on the site of an earlier 570 BCE temple, which was destroyed in a fire. The remains of the previous structure were incorporated into the construction of the newer one, as evidenced by the two recovered pediments (triangular spaces that form the gable of the roof) that were built into the temple wall. The well-preserved structure was a favorite among Neoclassical and Romantic artists, including J.M.W. Turner, yet it usually remains free from crowds. Enjoy the spectacular view from the temple and stop by the small on-site museum, which tells the history of the site's excavation, restoration, and the sculptures found here.

Interesting Temple, very well preserved. Nothing fancy regarding the park, short uphill walk. Neat little store at the bottom. Bought some great pistachios there and some yummy pistachio ice cream.
Easy to find, a short drive from the Aegina Port. A grand site to see and very well kept as the have done some renovation. You can get closer to this monument than most but it is still roped off. There is a also a great view from the top and the entrance fee is €6. The gift shop has some nice olive oil soap for bought for €3.
