Two island associations, the Anavasi Greek Cycling and Hiking Association of Aegina and the Association of Active Citizens of Aegina (Syllogos Energon Politon Aiginas), have cleared and marked ten paths so you can get to know the rich history of the island, its natural beauty, its culture, and its folk tradition. These paths were recently included in the Paths of Culture project of the Elliniki Etairia Society for the Environment and Cultural Heritage. Nine of the ten paths have been numbered. They have a total length of about 45 kilometers and range from easy to moderate. Path Seven (7) takes us all over the hill of Palaiochora, the location of the main settlement in Aegina for about 1,000 years. During the lovely 2 to 2 ½ hour hiking tour (including many stops in churches), we will discover 32 of the 350 churches that existed here, plus the castle and a few ruins of houses. This may be the most beautiful hiking route on the island.
