The location of this Temple is so magnificent... seeing the rolling hills and ocean in one direction, a modern day city in the other, and the fantastic structure of the Temple itself sitting in the midst of all of it...."amazing " seems too small a word, but I can't think of another superlative right now...

The Giunone Temple has still nice columns but he is not all preserved as the Concordia; also some columns are broken.

This was the last of the temples we visited in the valley. Timing our visit for the late afternoon made the whole experience worthwhile.

The collonade was partially re-erected in the early 20th century and is dedicated to Hera (or Juno) the goddess of matrimony and childbirth. The carthigians destroyed it in 406 BC, and burnt marks are still visible.

This is the third of the Agora temples in the Valley of Temples. It is not as well preserved as The Temple of Concord. However, with its columns standing high on the top of the Greek Agora, it has a charm of its own and commands an outstanding view. It is dedicated to the goddess Juno (Hera, for the Greeks)... More

This doesn't have the presence of the Temple of Concord as it is more of a ruin but the location at the top of the ridge is stunning with panoramic views of the surrounding area

This partially surviving temple clearly shows how they were built and the methods involved in building such monuments. You need a guide to explain the details.

This majestic structure has stood against time for many centuries, people have come and gone, yet these stones could partially tell a story of a once beautiful temple where people gathered to celebrate. People are still gathering around it, to admire the once powerful architecture and dream of bygone days

Our guide said although this is called the temple of Juno it was most likely not a temple dedicated to this goddess. Agrakas what the Greeks called Agrigento was tied to the sea and so this most likely served as a temple to that set of gods.
