The Valley of the Temples
Hours and tickets
Discovering the Valley of the Temples, one of the most extensive, representative, and best-preserved archaeological sites of classical Greek civilization, granted Unesco World Heritage status in 1997.
The archaeological area corresponds to the remains of the ancient Akragas, the original nucleus of modern Agrigento. Along a rocky scarp, chosen as the southern limit of the town, are still sited the great Doric temples dedicated to the gods.
Within the area of the ancient city, there is also the Pietro Griffo Regional Archaeological Museum, which houses 5688 finds that illustrate the history of the territory from prehistory to the end of the Greco-Roman age.
