Just a few miles from Athens lie the small but beautiful islands of the Argosaronic Gulf. Closest are the historic islands of Salamis, Aegina, famous for its ancient temples and medieval town, and Agistri, a miniature paradise; further down, in the Pelopponese, the Methana peninsula, famous for its healing springs, and Trizina, the mighty city of Troezen in ancient times; hugging the coast of the peninsula of Argolis are Poros, renowned for the Amphictyony which met in its temple of Poseidon, and to the west and south, Hydra and Spetses, islands with powerful fleets and a rich historical tradition in the modern era, boasting sea captains' mansions of impressive architecture. Continuously inhabited since antiquity, their rich historical and cultural tradition, marvellous climate, myriad natural beauties, well-developed tourist infrastructure and, most importantly, their proximity to Attica make them popular holiday spots for Athenians as well as foreign visitors.
