The Temple of Hercules is one of the seven temples in the valley of the temples at Agrigento. It was destroyed by an earthquake, but eight columns have been reconstructed. Since you're in the valley anyway, it's worth taking a look.

The Valley of the Temple offers a nice stroll passing beautiful ruins from Greek and Roman times, surrounded by citrus and almond trees. It takes you back to the ancient times of the Greeks and Romans, paving the way for our society today.

One of the many temples you get to see in the Valley. Great views on the surrounding area. Mythical, meditative place, especially if you visit in the low season and have the site almost to yourself like I did (February, March 2018).

Ancient architecture still standing, more than 2500 years old… much better than today's attempts, but I must confess, for different purposes. Accuracy in those old days was incredible! Go and see real marvels!

Once you get into the archeological park you have access to all the sites. Get there early so you can take your time without dozens odd people around you. We highly recommend the Valley of the Temples bus tour - buy your tickets on board....More
