The house of N. Kazantzakis
The internationally acclaimed Greek author Nikos Kazantzakis was one of the many artists that became enchanted by Aegina and its unique light. The island imbued him with inspiration and this is why he chose it as his residence for some years. His house, a neoclassical building built in 1936, is located in the Plakakia area, and it is within walking distance from the harbour, heading North. The house of Nikos Kazantzakis is not open to the public, but it is worth seeing it even from the outside. Just imagine that in this house, the great writer was inspired to compose some of his most important works (the Odyssey was one of them).
