Managed two trips to the monastery, one for exploration and a follow up for more spiritual reasons. Blessed to have the place mostly to ourselves, so quiet and in such a serene spot. very interesting series of rooms to explore. A Must!
A heavenly place with a stunning view of the landscape below. The church itself,in all it's splendor, is serene and peaceful. It's a place that once you have discovered it, you would certainly like to revisit. Only negative for us was that due to the...More
My Family went through some traumatic times. We had friends who visited St Nektarios and brought back some oil from here to heal. I then read up on St Nektarios and contacted the church to send me a book on St Nektarios.

This is an awesome monastery that was more recently built. For women wearing shorts or pants they offer long skirts for entering reverently. Men need to wear pants or shorts below knees. It is s remarkable piece of architecture.
Aegina is an island in the Aegean sea. You can get on a ship from Athens and go there in less than two hours (if you choose to go with the slow ship).
Saint Nectarios lived there, the last years of his life and he...More

We hired a car for the day to travel the island from Souvala. Agios Nectarios Monastery was high on our list and not difficult to find. In fact we stumbled upon it and were amazed by its beauty and tranquility. It is a truly 'magical'...More
Amazing Church and Monastery, it's worth visiting if you happen to be in Aegina. It has an easy access via car and for those who don't have a car, there are bus routes every few hours either from Aegina or Agia Marina and the ticket's...More
A wonderful, historic and beautiful church. A bit difficult to get to as one has to depend on taxi drivers at the port if you are only visiting Aegina for one day and that is not very pleasant, but that's another story ad we only...More
Dear Greek frieds, Could you please help us with some advices on how to get to Aegina Monastery from Athens. We have only 4-5 hours free to go there and get back. Thank you

Hello and welcome! I am sorry, but there is no way to get there and come back in 4-5 hours. You will need about 1 hour to get to Piraeus, 1 hour to get to Aegina and 20-30 minutes to get to the Monastery. As you can see it is not doable. Especially if you are not planning to do this in July/August when the ferries and dolphins come and go every hour you will need 8 hours at least!
