It's a nice building with plenty of history, don't get me wrong. But we weren't able to get in the building and it's not the type of building you can stand outside of and look at for hours. After 5-10 minutes we left.

The ancient tower is not very well kept, and rises on a small court/garden among the streets of the city. Not so interesting.

Loved the tower... a must see when you visit the island of Aegina... we were taken from our hosts from Vagia hotel on a little tour they were doing for the clients. Excellent... the tower takes you back to the age of the Greek revolution...More

We were driven here from our host at Vagia hotel just before we go to the hotel. It I see amazing that on this island there have been people living for the last 3400 years!
