(380+ reviews on the web)
Ruin
For a glimpse into ancient Grecian times, visit Eraclea Minoa, a modern city built on the foundation of a 6th-century BCE settlement established by Greek colonists from Selinunte. Though the area was most likely abandoned around the 1st century CE, and a historian uncovered the remains of the site in the 16th century. Tour this impressive, yet compact, attraction, located at the top of a hill just southeast of the mouth of the river Platani. Learn more about millennia of history and civilization in the Mediterranean as you explore the full necropolis, which was dug up in the 20th century. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Eraclea Minoa and many more Agrigento attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Agrigento vacation generator.
