Valley of the Temples, archaeological museum and garden of the Kolymbetra


Valley of the Temples, archaeological museum and garden of Kolymbetra

Using the entrance to the Temple of Juno, one travels along the Via Sacra along the southern fortification of Hellenic Akragas: from here one can admire in sequence the Temple of Juno, the Temple of Concord and the Temple of Hercules, all in Doric style, which were built between the 6th and 5th centuries BCE. Crossing the Valley of the Temples we reach the area of the temple of Zeus among whose ruins we admire the reconstruction of the giant Talamon (the original of which is kept at the Pietro Griffo Archaeological Museum). The walk ends at the temple of Castor and Pollux from where it is possible to reach the wonderful garden of Kolymbetra. This typical Mediterranean garden combines the scents of citrus fruits, the majesty of centuries-old olive trees and the view of the temples from a completely different perspective. After a light lunch at the hotel by the pool you will visit the renowned Pietro Griffo Regional Museum, next to which is the church of St. Nicholas and the Ekklesisterion from the 4th century B.C., where the town assembly used to meet and the so-called Oratory of Falarides, a small temple from Roman times.
