  • ... to imagine, because apart from a few slabs of base is not much left, but it's part of the story is the fact that the material of disused buildings were reused elsewhere. Copying only Telamon remaining and an good explanation of the place, are worth the visit

  • 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.
