Called in on our journey back to Aegina Town to light a candle for our Grandson. A truly beautiful church and convent. A delight.

Sitting in a valley about 7 km from Aegina downtown. Recommend you go. Remember though this is a religious site, dress appropriately. See the crypt, the cell and the small chapel with the side by side cells.

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.

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.
