  • The Orthodox monastery of Agios Nektarios is located in the heart of the Greek island Aegina. It can be reached with a bus leaving from the port of Aegina but alternatively by taxi or with an organized tour. If you have your own car, all the better. In women accessing covering your shoulders and legs. At the entrance there are cloaks in case you needed. Recently they have built also the services to the public. Inside there is also a shop selling icons, bracelets and more dedicated to the Saint. A quirk in the monastery is a tree surrounded by a wire mesh. There I leaned Santo Nekatio to read or pray. For those who go to Aegina is definitely a place worth visiting.

  • Massive, massive Greek-style building. There are the remains of a Saint who lived in this part of the island, but of Egyptian origin, in times not far away. It is a place much revered and popular with the locals, and not only. Everything inspires a sense of Holiness and devotion and may invite contemplation. Aesthetically it can also treat but, as usual, also raises the question of why the Greek religion are so difficult to express their faith in architectural forms that are not the repetitiveness of ancient styles.

  • This monastery is pretty big and very new. The location is superb. Take some cash with you because you can buy the best pistachio in Greece in the parking lot from local farmers! :-)  more »
