Next to the port of Aegina is the archaeological site of Kolona, which took its name from the Venetian sailors, because they used the column of the temple of Apollo as a sign to navigate. The Acropolis of Aegina was inhabited from the Bronze Age, it flourished as a place of worship in the 7th century BC and it was finally abandoned in around 1000 AD. The Doric temple of Apollo was built in the 6th century BC and its pediments depicted Amazonomachy.
