The discovery of Akragas was made in the latter half of the eighteenth-century, when first European travelers arrived in Sicily. They discovered an incredible artistic and archaeological heritage.
It is located in a beautiful valley with almond trees in bloom and it is one of the most striking examples of Hellenic architecture in Sicily. This unique appeal lies in the combination of natural landscape and cultural environment.
The most significant testimony to the classical, ancient culture of Sicily is the Valley of the Temples. It combines the temples of gods and goddesses with the area of the Necropolis and sanctuaries beyond the walls.
