Agrigento: Valley of the Temples

Entrance

This town boasts the largest and best preserved temple ruins outside of mainland Greece according to our tour information.

View from the ruins – what a site and I took this picture on an i phone..

Modern Sculptures are among the ruins and add to their majesty.

More ruins..

The eight Greek temples in the archaeological park were built between 430 and 510 B.C. on rocky mounts. It is a wonder to visit. Wish I had more to report however tour guides can sometimes have challenging accents, and a picture is worth a thousand words.

A tribute to those who served.

Statutes in perfect conditions except for one missing piece.

And on to evening leisure in Giardini Naxos..
