Tempio della Concordia, Agrigento

4.9
#2 of 40 in Things to do in Agrigento
Dedicated to the Roman goddess Concordia, Tempio della Concordia rests at the western end of the forum. The temple has been destroyed many times. Tiberius, Emperor Augustus' stepson, last restoration it between 7 and 10 CE. The structure is at the foot of Capitoline Hill because of the area's geography of the hill. You'll notice strange floor plans and rooms that are not proportionate. This site was something of an art museum in Tiberius' day, when Greek paintings and sculpture were displayed between the colorful marble columns.

    For me the most beautiful sites, both by night and day. Also the beautiful statue of Icarus in front of the temple. The temple and magical as the whole valley.

    If possible do to the sunset. There are especially two temples to miss and which are close to one another. Great views of the Valley.

    The temple of Concord was built around 430 av - JC, it is one of the Greek temples best-preserved. It was converted into a Christian basilica in the sixth century. This is the reason why it arrived in good condition, its structure has been strengthened. Restored in 1748, one can see the arcades in the origins of the Cella walls.
