While a bit of a walk, this Temple is worth seeing. It is not handicap accessible, which is sad, since it is important. The signs are nearly all in Italian only, so study ahead what you will be seeing and the importance of it.

After the two previous temples, this one is impressive but sort of falls in their shadows. It's still quite an accomplishment of an ancient civilization that should be seen. They do need some additional places to get outta the sun.

By comparison to the other temples in the valley, little remains. That said there is much to see here and at the garden which is nearby. It is closer to the lower parking lot.

In the lower section of the valley, below the western gate in amongst fallen pillars and building blocks it is less impressive than its neighbours up the hill ie temple of concord. But it gives you a better understanding of the construction methods and the effects of time. I found it interesting just to wander amongst the strewn portions that... More

This temple is one of the 5 that you will see in the Valley of the Temples. Walking through the park gives you of sense of how important religion was to the Roman population and how much time and effort was dedicated to worshiping these deities.

There is no image that reads more 'Greece' to me than the temples among the almond trees with that bluest- of- blue sky tacked up there. In fact, Agrigento is possibly the most Greek town in Sicily. Lively, crowded and full of life, it's not centred around the city's main arteries but in the Valley of the Temples. My earliest... More

The Temple of Dioscuri only has four surviving columns and is the least restored temple in the Valley. However, it sits at the end of the valley and somehow that makes it's station a little more impressive than it seems to warrant. Also looking back up the valley is very dramatic from this point.

See all the temples in the Valley of the Temples but if you walk from east to west you will have seen all the grand ones before coming to the rather disappointing Temple of the Dioscuri. That's because you have been spoiled by the others.

The attribution seems like guesswork and the remaining pieces don't form much of a picture of it, but as it's right at the end of the Valley of the Temples, which is an absolute must-see, there's no reason not to visit the Dioscuri as well.
