Agrigento is one of most beautiful site of Sicily and a UNESCO World heritage site for be one of the greatest cities of the ancient Mediterranean world. Agrigento however is not mainly known for the town itself. The interest instead focuses on the Grecian temples, which transport the soul of the visitor to ancient Dionysian mysteries linked to the love cults of Apollo and Aphrodite. Visitors travel here from all over the world to visit the Valle dei Templi, Valley of the Temples, one of Sicily's must-see sites. The area was a Greek settlement 2500 years ago and there are extensive remains of Greek temples that can be seen in the archaeological park. The Temple of Concord, beautifully perched on a ridge, can be seen as you approach the area. The town itself has a small and interesting historic center. Agrigento is in southwestern Sicily, overlooking the sea. It's just off the main road that runs along Sicily's south coast. It's about 140km south of Palermo and 200 km west of Catania and Syracuse.

Agrigento temples: Temple of Hera (Juno) Lacinia, Concordia, Heracles (Hercules), Olympian Zeus (Jupiter) Castor and Pollux (Dioscuri), Asklepius (Eusculapius) and Hephaistos (Vulcan)
