    Temple of olympion Zeus was once the biggest temple not only in ancient Agrigento, but in the whole of Sicily. However, in the same way as the Temple of Heracles, he was destroyed by the earthquake, and there are no standing columns. Now it's the remnants of the Foundation and a pile of stones. The only interesting object here is reclining statue of Atlanta, before standing in the temple.
