The sanctuary of Aphaia is located on the top of a hill at the northeast point of the island occupying a site roughl 80 by 80 m. 25 of the original 32 Doric columns still stand due to the skill of the restorers. The success of Aegina as a maritime trader, often in opposition often to nearby Athens on the mainland, provided the wealth that allowed such a magnificent temple to be built on the Island.
