Ancient religious pathos is still here

One of Sicily’s most famous historical attractions is without a doubt the Valley of the Temples, just outside Agrigento. It is one of the most important examples of Greek art and architecture. This splendid archaeological park consists of eight temples (and various other remains) built between about 510 BC and 430 BC: the Temple of Hera, the Temple of Concordia, the Temple of Heracles, the Temple of Olympian Zeus, the Temple of Castor and Pollux, the Temple of Hephaestos, the Temple of Demeter, and the Temple of Asclepius (God of Medicine). Moreover, the Valley houses the so called “Tomb of Theron”, a huge tuff monument of pyramidal shape. It was supposedly built to commemorate the Romans killed in the Second Punic War.
The area became part of the UNESCO Heritage in 1997.
