Our 2013 Holiday

In Sicily


The Valley of the Temples is an archeological site in Agrigento, and dates back to 2,500 years ago to the Greek city of Akragas, located on the south coast of Sicily on the Mediterranean Sea.

The Temple of Concordia owes its name to a Latin inscription found nearby with a dedication to "harmony of the people of Agrigento" found in its vicinity, although it has nothing to do with the temple itself, which was constructed in the Doric Style, as is the rest of the temples found at this site.


Below left is a reassembled remnant of the Temple of Castor and Pollux and on the right is a view of the Mediterranean Sea from the ridge of the temples.
