Temple of Zeus

The evocative ruins of this Temple to Zeus lie on top of Mt. Ellanio (also locally known as Oros). The mythical King of Aegina, Aiokos, appealed to the God to send rain during a long drought on the island.

When the God fulfilled his wish the king thanked him by building a temple at the island’s highest point. The hike to the summit is well worth the breathtaking views of the Saronic Gulf.
