Watering Hole by the Church of Saint George

In Aegina, a place with severe water scarcity, we will encounter many stone structures like wells that the inhabitants used to collect rainwater to water their crops and animals. These structures were called souvales (souvala in the singular form). The word is probably derived from the Slavic word 'suvala,' which means 'swamp' (that is, standing water). For the same purpose, we will also see several black stones (characteristic stones of Aegina, from the Kakoperato area) chiseled to form a large cavity on top of them. Some of these watering holes belonged to families. This is an impressive watering hole next to the country church of Saint George (Agios Georgios), north of Sfentouri. The southwestern detour from Path Two (2) which comes from the Ancient Olive Grove (Archaios Elaionas) and ends at the little church of the Cross (Stavros) east of Perdika reaches this point.
