Sicily has some of the best Greek temples in existence outside of Greece. Extensive remains of Greek temples from the ancient city of Akragas, dating back 2500 years, can be seen in Agrigento’s Valley of the Temples archaeological park, Parco dei templi Agrigento.
The archaeological park is divided into two sections, the area di Zeus, and across the street, Collina dei Templi, where you’ll find the most complete temple remains lined up on a ridge and great views. Roman tombs and Greek walls run along the pathway on the Collina dei Templi. Temple highlights include:
The Valley of the Temples is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
