Just 6 kilometers from the port of Aegina, opposite the medieval Paleochora, is the Monastery of Agia Triada. The monastery is better known as the Monastery of Agios Nektarios and attracts thousands of believers from all over Greece.

The monastery was founded by Bishop of Pentapolis Nektarios, the director of Rizarios Ecclesiastical School in Athens. He spent here the last years of his life, until his death, in 1920.

Next to the monastery there is one of the greatest and most magnificent churches in Greece, the modern church of Agios Nektarios.

The monastery celebrates on November 9th and September 3rd.

Paleochora
Paleochora is the medieval face of Aegina hidden on a steep cliff in order to avoid the Saracen pirates that devastated the area, but they didn’t avoid the raids completely.
Church of Agioi Theodoroi
Near the port of Aegina is located the tiny church of Agioi Theodoroi which was built in 1289 by Leo Zygomalas and belonged probably to this family.
