One of several temples in the Agrigento complex so it's hard to rate it by itself. This one still retains enough of the original to give a good feel for the temple as it must have looked long ago. Do take the time to include it in your visit to the temples.

This entire archeological complex. including the Temple of Juno, was stunning! The complex is long and parking is a pain....it runs from east to west. Parking is on either side. It's a long walk to get back to your car. If you take parking on the west side, they will drive you to the east side. When you get to... More

This was definitely one of my favorite parts. We had a tour guide with us and she told us all about the massive temple that once stood as a testament to the god. A wonderful place to go.

Dorric pillars and special energy. Great position of a Temple. For me, the ancient architectural achievements, that I allways like to admire.

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
