The Temple of Apollo is placed to the north of Aegina town, on a small hill overlooking the port. It is the first site you see when you arrive at the port. The site is also known as Kolona (Column) because of one remaining column from this construction until today. It dates from the 6th century BC, even earlier than the Parthenon in Athens. Constructed in the Doric architectural style, it is believed that it had 11 columns on the sides and 6 columns on the ends. The location of the temple provides some good views of the harbor town.
