“shame you can't get closer!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

it's nice....probably better from a distance (looks magic from the road), and you can't get a good look because you are lower on ground level than the temple. I would have thought they could have built a platform around one side to get a good look in...not really worth the price in my oppinion (10euros with the valley of the temples)

“Very well preserved and imposing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

Because it was converted to Christian uses early one, the structure itself is as well preserved as any I can recall seeing. In the late afternoon sunlight, it is really amazing.

“Probably the best preserved Greek temple in the world”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

This is a very intact temple, built in the mid 5thC BC, but converted into a church in the 6thC by the Bishop of Agrigento. It remained a church until the 18thC when the added church structure was removed. This church structure preserved the original Greek temple. Unfortunatly like most of the intact temples in Sicily it is not possible to walk inside the structure and it is only possible to view the interior of the temple from the security fencing.

“A great example of Ancient Greek architecture”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

The temple of Conord is a fantastic building and lies in the heart of the valley of the temples in Agrigento. We paid about 3 euro to go into a painting exhibit within the valley site and this gave us access into the temple, which I think is normally dearer on its own. Trying to find a taxi around Agrigento (and Sicily in general) can be difficult so try to figure out the bus service in advance as there is a steep walk back into the town.

“Prepare to take a step back in time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013 via mobile

Words fail me to describe this attraction.

As you walk around the site, you get a sense of actually taking a step back in time. The site is well indicated and a map is provided.

Reasonable entry of Euro11,00 each adult.

Wear comfortable shoes as alot of walking needs to be done (including up hill) to get the most of this attraction.

Highly recommended!
