Tempio di Giunone, Agrigento

(4.8/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web)
A highlight in the Valley of Temples, the partially restored ruins of Tempio di Giunone perch on top of a hill overlooking Agrigento. Built in honor of the goddess Hera (wife of Zeus), the temple bears scars on its pillars dating back to the Siege of Akragas in 406 BCE, when it was charred from the fires. The Romans later dedicated the temple to Juno, the wife of Jupiter. Take a guided tour to fully appreciate the area's rich history, and be sure to bring a camera along as the temple's position offers excellent views of the surroundings. Tempio di Giunone is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Agrigento Edition.

  • You will be astonished at the beauty of these temples But and thanks to them that we see the reality, that is what history tells us through books, otherwise we would have to go to fantasy, to conceive how they were made and if true, that, together with the people that year built. Visit Agrigento. :)

  • Amazing temple, and right next to the east parking lot. Sit on the east side, and you'll also get the best views of the countryside.
  • Everything great. It's free for under 18, 5 € for under 25, 10€ for the others. I recommend to visit at the sunset, for a great experience.
  • A walk back in time. Awesome.
  • Lovely and well maintained place. Only thing, use the toilet when you have the chance.
  • Nicely persevered.
