Ancient Aigeira

Aigeira is a sea side – north Peloponnesian town with typical wide pebble beach and crystal clear waters. It has it’s ancient remainings at the hilltop just a few kilometers away from the sea. This very interesting but less known to tourists archaeological sightseeing includes a well preserved ancient theatre, surrounding remainings of temples, baths and a much older Mycenean era “acropolis”.

The theatre of Aigeira is also described in detail by the ancient traveler Pausanias on his travel books.

 

The site is very much worth visiting because of it’s historical / cultural significance as well as for its breathtaking views to the Corinthian gulf
