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

Using the entrance to the Temple of Juno, we walk along the Via Sacra along the southern fortification of Hellenic Akragas: from here we 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 BC. Crossing the Valley of the Temples, we reach the area of the Temple of Zeus, among whose ruins we can admire the reconstruction of the giant Talamone (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 marvellous Kolymbetra garden. 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 are the church of St Nicholas and the Ekklesisterion from the 4th century BC, where the town assembly used to meet, and the so-called Oratory of Falarides, a small temple from the Roman era.
