Religious Tourism

Aegina is an island with many churches and monasteries. It is said that on every mountain top a little church is built. That is why religious tourism prospers here.

Nowadays only 38 out of the 565 churches have been saved, which are of Royal architectural rhythm and are categorized in three different architectural types:
a. One-room Retrospective temples
b. Royal Free-crossed temples with a dome
c. Twin Royal Temples with two sanctuaries – entrances.
Analytical information and photos can be found at Municipality of Aegina, in Religious Tourism and in the official site of the island. Aegina also has numerous monasteries. The most famous among them are:

Monastery of Aghios Nektarios
Monastery of Panaghia Chrysoleontissa
The Church of Faneromeni
Monastery of Aghia Aikaterini
Royal Temple of Aghioi Theodoroi
The Monasteries of Palaiochora

The hotel XANTHIPPI, upon request, gives you the possibility to visit the churches and the monasteries of the island.
