  • At base, be sure to take a walk in the archaeological site, which the first traces date back to the bronze age; We also see later remains, some walls of houses and places of worship. The Temple of Apollo, is only a broken column moving precisely because of his solitude. The Cape Kolona sinks into the blue of the sea, offering a both wild and soothing. The path that leads up to the temple twists in a colourful and fragrant vegetation (at least in March!). Do not neglect the small museum that presents a few beautiful pieces from various periods.

  • Small but interesting museum that you can visit on the way to the beach. Fascinating archeological site with colonna of ancient Apollon's temple.
  • Decent collection of statues and pottery from ancient times. The archaeological site is well worth a look too.
  • Small but very nice because of the paint still present on some of the finds. Quite unique!
  • The museum is pretty old and the collection is not that impresive (compered with other archaiological museums in greece). Still it's a nice visit and a must see if you are in aegins. On the same place the archaiological site of column (κολωνα) wich was a pretty nice walk. That is what remained from the first museum that opened in modern greece when aegina was the capital. The aegina collection was the core of the national archaelogical museum in athens.
  • Simple, but great. Quite informative and some artifacts date back to the early Bronze Age but are still well preserved and rather whole. Great to visit while on a day trip on the island.
