Great architecture, great location, beautiful landscape. It is a very important religious benchmark therefore if you are Greek Orthodox and visiting Aegina you have to make this a “Must see” stop. Not close to the port (main) area but there are tour busses which for...More

We have rented a bike from Aegina port and it took about 45 minutes to get here. On the road there are many direction signs so you can't get lost. The view is very nice.

These posts are about Agios Nektarios Monastery on Aegina island, where he used to live, not on the island of Rhodes. It is located about 6 km from the port in Aegina town.
