  • In addition to the countless variants of palms and cacti can be found here, above all, lots of fruits and fruit trees: almonds, oranges and tangerines, bananas and peaches, figs and dates and so on. With beautiful waterfall. Large climbing party is certain after your visit to the temples.

  • The place is nice but nothing more. I see that people have paid €5! But what chance because we paid €6 per person. We are we screwed? The garden is beautiful, we wanted to continue to walk but other smells of flowers of Orange, there is frankly nothing exceptional especially that these wonderful smells we feel them everywhere at this time of the year (April)

  • Already the access is quite complicated to find (entrance East to the Valley of the temples), the garden is quiet and spektakuläres...doch maybe different trees and plants interesting, but nothing in the furthest corner crossing the railway tracks and the hidden Temple ruins

  • It was informative and educating but could use some use better signs and indicators to guide visits around the area.
  • Beautiful place with many interesting plants.
  • "The biggest city of mortals" as it was called by Pindar this vast archaeological area of the garden of Kolymbethra, today large Sicilian territory. At one time, big water tank afterwards, rubbish dump today do the recovered almost completely restoring its former glory. It is a pleasure to stroll through the streets and you are facing is the spectacle of nature with centuries-old olive trees plants of chinotto oranges and lemons that temples of Vulcan and of the Dioscuri.

  • A magical place, an unexpected corner of the Valley of the temples, topped off by the courtesy and competence of operators of the Fai.
