ABOUT Agistri , Saronic

Angistri, it is a small heaven on earth situated at the Saronic Gulf, smothered in plants and trees, with pine trees “touching” its crystal blue waters.

Histora1y

Excavations have shown that Agistri was inhabited 2500 years ago. Agistri along with the surrounding islands of the Saronic Gulf constituted the kingdom of Aegina under the mythical King Aiakos. Several areas of Agistri are of archaeological interest such as Megaritissa, Aponissos, as well as Kontari. Ruins from the pre-Christian period can be found at the west coast close to the surface of the sea. Some archaeological findings from the island are exhibited in the Cultural Centre in Milos.Agistri was not inhabited continuously during the centuries, as it was very small and very vulnerable to pirate attacks. The population started to increase during the last century and is nowadays just over 1000 people. In summer, this goes up to 4500.
