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.

We hope the government of the Sicily starts to tke care more of this important historical patrimony. Its a pity realizing that those columns are there because its own will. There is no guards, no surveillance at the archeological sites

We were most impressed with the Valley of the Temples, which is the world's largest sacred valley. The Temple of Dioscuri is one of many that has been well preserved, considering the earthquake damage to this site many centuries ago.
