Agrigento

These are among the greatest Greek ruins in the world. And the splendor of the temples in the Doric style, built during the fifth and sixth centuries BC. Agrigento was founded by colonists from Rhodes and Crete coming from nearby Gela. It reached its maximum splendor in the 5th c. BC when the magnificent Doric temples were built on the southern hill.

The archaeological park in Agrigento is among the richest in the Mediterranean

With several Doric temples, sanctuaries, necropolises and the feeling that wherever you dig ancient artifacts will be brought to light. But the place is not just a priceless archaeological patrimony. Its magic is in blending the ancient ruins with the landscape. The continuity of form and color of the temples and those of the hills. Striking olive green among the golden stones. And Almond blossoms in spring.
