The site of the temples valley, registered to the world heritage of UNESCO, includes several doric temples and the vestiges of the ancient Greek walls of Akragas, important city of the Large Greece or Magna Grecia, the greek colonies in Mediterranean sea.
In spite of its name, the temples are built on a peak.
From the main entrance, one can reaches two sectors: western with the ruins of the immense temple of Olympian Zeus and the rests of other temples like Dioscuries one. The eastern part is much more interesting with its three temples: the temple of Hercules, the temple of the Concordia and the temple of Hera. The second is the only one which is still intact.
