Kolona

The remains of a Neolithic settlement have been found on the hill of Kolona just one kilometer northwest of Aegina Town.

Excavations have uncovered evidence that the site was destroyed and restored several times and was surrounded by a wall, indicating that the threat of outside invaders was significant during that period. The northern walls dating back to 1600 are still intact.
