Aegina is a relatively small island 17 miles SW of Athens. It has a rich history, human presence on the island dates back to the prehistoric period. The town of Aegina was the first capital of modern Greece. Strangely there was no geocache on the island. Aegina series is the first geocaching series consisting of eight caches placed mainly in areas of historical interest.
This cache will bring you to the small chapel of Profitis Ilias. Almost all the churches dedicated to the biblical Prophet Elijah in Greece are on the top of hills and mountains. According to the Greek folklore Prophet Ilias was a sailor who abandoned the sea. He wanted to find a place where the people didn't even knew the existence of the sea, so he traveled with an oar. When he met a shepherd that didn't knew what “this piece of wood” was, he was pleased and settled there.
The coordinates for this cache are N 37 46.ABC E023 28.DEF
