Travel guide to Agrigento
Concordia Temple
Concordia Temple
Agrigento is situated on the southern coast of Sicily and is often considered to have Greek remains equal in quality to those in Greece itself. The town is situated some 2 to 3km up from the coast with a purpose built and fascinating archaeological musem just over half way. Opposite to the museum is a site of the domestic remains [extensive but very ruined] from the classical period.
However, the pride of Agrigento is the Valley of the Temples, near the coast and connected with the town by a local bus from the station. The more complete remains are those to the left – east – of the road but those to the west include a lying telamon [huge figure of a man once forming a pillar]. There is a standing one, made up from parts, in the museum.
In the second week of February there is a festival to celebrate the almond blossom. [mandorlo in fiori] [edit text]  [editors]
