Fodor's Expert Review Markelon Tower

Aegina Town Building/Architectural Site

During the negotiations for Greece during the War of Independence, Ioannis Kapodistrias, the first president of the country, conducted meetings in the Markelon Tower, which dates back to the late 17th century. Today, the pink- and ocher-hued tower is being looked after by the municipality and occasionally houses cultural events and exhibitions.
