The Valley of the Temples

The Valley of the Temples

A magical place steeped in history with all the magnificence of antiquity, the Valley of the Temples in Agrigento, a UNESCO world heritage site, preserves, to this day, some of the most important monuments of Ancient Greek civilisation. The Valley of the Temples, with an area of 1,300 hectares, is the largest archaeological site in the world and includes the ruins of Akragas, founded in 580 B.C. by Greeks from Rhodes and from the colony at Gela. The ten glorious Doric temples in various states of preservation exude all the pomp and majesty of that which the poet Pindaro described as "the most beautiful city of the mortals", at the height of its splendour, when it was one of the most influential towns in the Mediterranean. From the imposing columns of the Temples of Juno and Hercules, to those of the Temple of Castor and Pollux, symbol of the city of Agrigento, from the beautifully preserved Temple of Concordia, to the remains of that of Zeus, one of the largest temples in antiquity, as well as sanctuaries, agoras, fortifications and necropolis, all beautifully framed by almond and centuries-old olive trees, the Valley of the Temples in Agrigento, pearl of Sicily, is even more magnificent at dusk when as if by magic the sunset lends a golden glow. Discover our luxury properties near the Valley of the Temples, the perfect setting to enjoy a mythical holiday in Sicily.
