The Valley of the Temples is one of the largest archaeological sites in the world and it is situated on the hills of the ancient Akragas, now Agrigento. The Park is 1300 hectares large and hosts six ancient temples built in the 5th century BC when the city was a Greek colony. Today, the ruins are still well preserved and they are one of the most significant testimonies of Greek culture and art; therefore, it was nominated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997.
We suggest starting the visit from Rupe Atenea, the highest peak where you can enjoy the view of the entire valley below, as well as the remains of the Temple of Demeter. Descending through the Via Panoramica dei Templi, you will encounter the Temples of Juno, followed by the Temple of Concordia, the park symbol and the most well-preserved temple of the Valley, due to its conversion into a Catholic Basilica around the 6th century BC.
