Eraclea Minoa, Agrigento

(3.7/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • We have a wonderful view of the sea from the theatre. Instead, he was asked for € 4 to see horrible dark and metallic structures covered the stands of the theater. No poetry emerges from the site. Avoid this as much as the beach is any.

  • beautiful beach quite & serene pine trees below the cliffs & sand make this the best beach ive seen in Sicily  more »
  • This is perhaps one of the most beautiful beaches I've been to and even more particularly with regard to the area, as the beach, which is pretty close behind a large pine forest, where you can access both for some shade that maybe have a picnic. The water is clean water and strolling along the beach you can reach other equally hot beaches backed by a rock wall completely white, recently ran for the beach some guys with a quaint little cart that sold freshly roasted corn seasoned with olive oil or butter to taste, serve on their leaf. Try them!
