This temple is the most complete of the several in the area and it's location is quite spectacular--perched on a hill overlooking the city and the sea. Well worth a visit to Agrigento for this site alone!

This temple is the logo of UNESCO world heritage, and it is easy to see why. It is magnificent, and the approach along a wide promenade creates a stunning vision to this large and wonderfully preserved and restored temple. One can look at the temple from 3 angles but not get close enough to climb, which is good because it... More

This was not the first visit to these wonderful temples, and probably not the last time either. The location, views and ruins are awesome.

What can you say about temples that are thousands of years old and still standing. We love history and were in awe of these temples.

One of the wonders of this world. A bit of a walk, but with all that well preserved history, you won't even feel.

This is most complete temple and is in a stunning position on a high ridge. The setting is superb, blue sea in the distance and surrounded by Sicilan countryside.

Just one of a number of temples clustered together; but more intact or better reconstructed than most. Unbelievably impressive at night. You really need some sort of guide or guide book to get the full and impressive history of the Temples and their multiple uses over the centuries.

This temple is the crown jewel of the Valley of the Temples. The building dates to 430 BC and was designed by a skillful architect who incorporated an optical illusion called "entasis" that made the columns seem to incline toward the interior. Crowning the hill, the temple is visible from miles away.
