Tempio della Concordia, the most beautifully preserved temple in the Vally of the Temples.
Jul 2019
Concordia Temple, Agrigento's most famous temple, one of the world's most preserved Dorians temples. Except for the destroyed roof, the temple is almost completely intact, and its 34 dorians pillars are almost completely preserved. In the 6th century, the Bishop of Agrigento, made this temple a church after he expelled the pagans who were in it and it was this step that led to the preservation of the temple / church. The church was largely destroyed and partially restored in 1788. The most damaging issue about visiting the temple is that it can only be seen from the outside because its entrance is forbidden.
According to local tradition, couples who visit the temple on their wedding day will have a happy marriage.

The ruins are fantastic! The cafe awful.
May 2019
Avoid the cafe at the top, you'll thank me for the advice if you have to use it -dirty loos, plagues of wasps, overpriced, stale tourist food. The ruins themselves are spectacular and the crap cafe shouldn't put you off going! Wear stout shoes and take some water if the day is hot.

Simply the best.
Jul 2019
The name of the temple we owe it due to one of the first Sicilian historians Tommaso Fazello. However, to whom this temple was actually dedicated, we don`t know until now. The sad state of the neighbors in the valley suggests that the temple of Concordia had to go through a lot to remain in the beautiful form as it is now. Along with the Parthenon, it is the best-preserved Doric temple in the world. It was necessary to survive the capture of Acragas by the Carthaginians in 406, the first and second Punic wars in the third century BC, the barbarian invasions in the fifth century AD, and the endless wars in Sicily in the middle ages. And, finally, it was necessary to protect themselves from the locals, who pulled apart almost all of ancient Rome. They were more danderous for antique temple than the barbarians. Concordia was lucky here. It was called the Church and it protected from encroachments of fans to get hold of antique building materials. Exactly the same saved the Pantheon in Rome. The Concordia temple is beautiful. From all sides. At any time of the day. In the evening, it is illuminated, but I didn`t go here a second time.

Most beautiful ancient Greek Temple
Jan 2019
This is the most intact temple of all Greek ruins left in the world. Definitely worth visiting the Valle dei Templi to check out this Temple of Concordia. There are many other temples and ruins here, but this is the most famous and best preserved one.
