      Valley of the Temples - is scattered on mountain tops dilapidated home of the gods. Age of each temple - a few thousand years. Their dimensions are enormous, and the person feels just a grain of sand in the desert on the background of these places of worship.

      Valley of the Temples - in fact not at all Valley: This temple complex is located on a hill. To this day preserved temples of Juno, Hercules, Zeus, Vulcan, Asclepius, Castara and Pollux, as well as the Temple of Concordia. Previously on the site of temples located one of the largest Greek city - Akragant. "The power and glory of this city are such that they shall build temples as if they are destined to live forever, and eat and drink as if they were destined to die the next day" - so spoke of his philosopher Empedocles. However, the city was captured and destroyed karfagenyanamі.

      Archaeologists found the city was in the 19th century. Excavations are to this day, and therefore it is possible that the already rich history of Agrigento enriched more and more facts and tell them about the many mysteries of ancient Greece.
