Most: Perhaps the highest visible ruins in Agrigento. The reddish colour on some of the stone blocks indicating fire, fuels the imagination of what happened at the time. Quite extraordinary.. Least: ...very little

If you come into the Valley of the Temples at this end of it you will start with this temple which is perched on the top of the hill. If you think this is a great temple then just stroll down the hill and come across the most complete one on the site, Concord. Giunone is one of the four... More

We did the 6 euro cab ride to the top (being 60+ yrs old a one way down hill sounded, and was, well worth the price) so this was our first ruin to see. I'm a bit of a history buff so this was SPECTACULAR!!! Greek ruins right here in Sicily..... and it got better. Don't miss the VERY old... More

If you start your tour of the Valley of the Temples at the top of the hill, this is the first temple you come to. It's not as complete as the Temple of Concordia, but it is majestic just the same. It was a good place to start the tour. We hired a guide for 10E. It's not necessary but... More

It is lacking more elements now than Concord, but just as regal. It is the highest in altitude, and last in line, so it gives the feeling of being a goal, and a feminine one at that. Looking out over the rich countryside, one can understand the worship of a mother figure being greater than that of a warrior (Hector).... More

Those Greeks must have really respected Juno to create such a massive structure and sculptures. Make sure to go around the perimeter.

The Hera temple is the last temple at the end of the archeological park. Its elevation gives the visitor a unique view on the entire valley. Simply magnificent.

Amazing! Make sure you listen to the guided commentary for the historical details and make sure you walk around the whole temple to the back where the tour groups don't seem to stop - the photos will be better as there will be less people. Also, note that the Temple is known as Temple of Giunone (also Junon or Juno)... More
