Truly magnificent - beyond what I even had imagined. Instantly recognizable even at a distance. Visit early or late to try and avoid crowds.

その他の神殿は破壊されたり崩れているモノも多い中、これは見事な景観を保っている。 重機もない昔、人間の力でこれを作ったと考えただけで感動できる。 beautiful temple! you should see this one at least.

The temple is very well preserved and it is easy to understand/imagine how it looked like in ancient time.

To visit Temple Concordia and the rest of the temples. As the sun sets, not only is it cooler, but the light is so much better on the temples than at the middle of the day. Awesome photos later as the sun begins to set. This is the best preserved of all the temples here and rivals the Parthenon, although... More

nothing prepares one for the pristine majesty of this temple whether viewed in the daytime or at night. the site of this and the other temples is large and with little shade so bring water and an umbrella or hat. if you can arrange it get dropped off at one entrance and be collected from the other as this will...

Trip Advisor may make it seem that all of the temples are in different places, but they are all part of one long walking tour. Temple of the Concord is beautiful and the statue near it of Icarus is stunning. Wear comfortable clothing and good soled walking shoes. If hot, bring water!

I could tell you how amazing the valley of the temples are but you already knew that! So I'll just say when I was 5 yrs old I loved the movie by Ray Harryhausen "Clash of the Titans" and meeting fallen Icarus made me incredulously happy.

This is a temple that is practically restored to its original beauty and is the highlight of any visit to Valle Dei Templi

No matter your age or how hot the day is, the Temple of Concord is worth the effort to experience. Do your research before you go so you will know what to look for and understand what you are seeing. Also, it isn't Disneyland so I wouldn't recommend it to children under 10.
