Kolona Aegina Greek Islands Saronic Greece

Kolona is located on the left side of the harbour of Aegina and it was the ‘Acropolis’ in Aegina in Ancient times.

It was named after its only pillar which remains today. Kolona was first inhabited in 3500 B.C. which was the copper era.

The settlement was protected by a wall which was built in 3000 B.C.

The settlement was destroyed about ten times and was always re-built.

The northern walls, which were built around 1600 B.C., have been saved along with some ruins that date back to 1300 B.C.

In the southern part there are remains of Byzantine buildings and priests' residences.
