AGISTRI Village EGINA

Overview

  Agistri's capital was used in ancient times as a base of naval operations and as point of rearmament.
   Crystal-clear blue waters in natural coves create sandy areas for swimming. Scenic tiled lanes, traditional cafes (kafeneia), decrepit figures dressed in the local-style attire, and the windmill, all contribute to the lively history of the island.
   Stone-built houses, fresh-painted white walls, clay-tiled roofs, outdoor house oves, orderly clean yards meet the modern-built hotel units. Cafe-Bars, Ouzo-snack-cafes, Restaurants and Night Clubs are ready to serve any one of you that will visit our island.
  Further away and on top of a hill deep in the pine-tree forest is the little church of "Agion Panton" (All Saints), it stands there through the passing of time and calls the visitor to gain the knowledge of the island's roots, and that's how he discover "Kandouki", the old village, that is, whatever remains from some much older settlement.
  Leaving Megalochori heading west you find yourself in a magical place that combines in absolute harmony the green of the pine-tree and the deep blue of the sea.
  The trees that, with the passing of time, bend curving into the sea and almost embrace the waters and the boats at the old shipyard bear witness for the hundreds of years that they are there.
  The recently asphalt paved road leads us further west of the island at a place that the signs say that is called 'Dragonera'. Besides the single little restaurant there everything else has remained untouched.
   Crystal clear waters, natural beaches, pine trees that reach the shores, quietness and stillness are just part of the riches that nature offers with generosity there. And the road continues south uphill, then downhill, and we reach a glade, an oasis full of history for the old-timers but a magical place for the visitor. It is 'Polemi' with the old church of St. Barbara with the fortune to be consecrated by St. Nektarios.
