Valley of the Temples

Argrigento is situated on Sicily's southern coast, and the town's Valley of the Temples (Valle dei Templi) is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the greatest legacies of ancient Greece. This parade of well-preserved Doric temples, just outside town, dates back to the fifth century BC and is what remains of the Greek city of Akragas.  Here are a couple of web sites where you can learn more:
