The monasteries of Aigialeia are fragments of the worship and daily life of people who renounced the worldly. People who followed the spiritual militarism of monasticism in a high value system with a focus on glorifying the greatness of God.
The many religious monuments are the “miracle” of Aigialeia. They gain our attention with their humility and in themselves constitute a separate unit for this place. The Christian faith has been expressed many times over the centuries throughout the region. Monasteries and churches of great religious and architectural value were built. Important pilgrimages – stations today.
Today more and more of those who follow religious tourism, come to admire the Temples of God up close. People who want to know the grandeur of their faith and come closer to their deepest existence. Believers who obey their need to understand the Divine as expressed in His places of worship.
Aigialeia invites you to follow the paths of faith to discover Monasteries and Holy Temples with a special and original character. Built in beautiful locations.
