Getting to know the ancient port facilities of Aegina

Aegina, an island with a long history, played an important role in several periods of Greek history. It was a maritime superpower that dominated the waters of ancient Greece and beyond during the Archaic period. In the late 6th and early 5th century BC, the wall of the ancient city was built, enclosing the two harbours, the military harbour with the nave for the warships and the commercial harbour. At the same time, the temple of Apollo and other temples dominated the hill of Kolona, and the theater and the stadium of Aegina were built. The new app, Aigina Geoculture, takes you on a journey through time and the ancient port facilities of Aegina.
