One of the most visited sites on Aegina is the church of Agios Nektarios and the monastery of Agia Triada. Saint Nektarios of Aegina (1846-1920), is one of the most widely known Greek Orthodox Saints. Agios Nektarios was known as a great miracle worker.

Monastery of Agios Minas

village: Agia Marina
This monastery lies south-west of the Afea Temple, on a beautiful spot surrounded by pine trees. It is a women's monastery since 1956. The monastery impresses the visitor with the nun's industriousness, its organisation but also the spirituality which is obvious during the mass with the melodic voices of the nuns who chant and every other church gathering.
