Monastery of the Holy Trinity, Aegina

St Nectarios, one of the most famous Orthodox Saints of the 20th century, lived next to the Monastery of the Holy Trinity, in Aegina. He began building the monastery on top of the ruins of a previous monastery dedicated to the Life Giving Spring. This is currently the old part of the monastery, where the nuns live, who receive countless faithful on a daily basis. Together with the new Church of St Nectarios, it is one of the most popular pilgrimages in Greece.
