Valley Of Temples Italy
Spend an afternoon at arguably Sicily's most famous site, the Valley of the Temples in the historic hilltop city of Agrigento. The dramatically preserved UNESCO archaeological park is a huge 1300-hectares in size and home to eight temples that were built approximately between 510 BC and 430 BC. See the remains of coloured statues of important deities, stone columned structures and striking Byzantine tombs that were built into the city walls. The park is also home to the remarkable Tempio della Concordia. Its grand Greek structure is impeccably preserved and has survived almost entirely since construction in 430BC. Take the time to see the other remarkable temples and relics, which all have unique markings and carved decorations.
