Aegina is a picturesque Greek island just a short distance from Athens. Known for its rich history, natural beauty, and historical importance. The island's natural beauty is highlighted by its landscapes, including olive groves, citrus orchards, and beautiful beaches. Aegina is particularly known for its iconic high-quality pistachios.
One of the island's notable landmarks is the Monastery of Saint Nektarios, a site of profound religious importance dedicated to this beloved saint. The monastery's main church is adorned with exquisite Byzantine-style artwork, boasting frescoes and icons that vividly depict the life and miraculous deeds of Saint Nektarios. Saint Nektarios, a prominent figure in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, was renowned for his unwavering piety, profound humility, and dedicated charitable work. Following his passing in 1920, his reputation as a healer and miracle worker led to his canonization by the Greek Orthodox Church.
