Even though not much remains of this site, the single column is well worth the visit. The views by the single column are amazing and offer a great view of the site as a whole. The museum on the site is amazing as well

Located on the headland the site contains the archaeological museum of aegina which purports to be the oldest in Greece, the temple of Apollo is pretty impressive and would have commanded an excellent view in its day
