  • Beautiful in its simplicity, what little they have managed to revive the two twin temples, arbitrarily attributed to Castor and Pollux! Icon of the Valley and on the Grand Tour

  • After reading the information about the Temple of Castor and Pollux I have two questions. Firstly, why the brothers Castor and Pollux are Dioskurami, in the mythology of the words like no, well, we will assume that this is their last name. And secondly, why this temple is considered to be one of the symbols of Agrigento, I haven't noticed either during your stay in the city, nor when looking for information on the Internet. Just this fact was approved and everything. Well, the temple has survived at least much better than the Temple of Zeus, 4 there is a columns all the same with a piece of roof. There is something to see. Come and see!
