Vergina is a small town in Greece, which was named after the legendary Queen Vergina who was a symbol of freedom due to the resistance she put up during the conquest of the city by the Turks. It is believed to be located in the geographical location of ancient Aigai, the royal capital of ancient Macedonia. At this location in 1977, the archaeologist Manolis Andronikos discovered the burial place of the Macedonian Kings, including King Philip II, father of Alexander the Great, a prominent figure who sealed the global history indelibly.
In Vergina, you can visit the Archaeological Site in order to admire the exquisite architectural monuments which cause awe, including the Palace of Aigai, the Tomb of Philip II and the Tomb of Persephone.
