The Temples at Agrigento are exquisite. Be prepared to have your mind blown. Take a camera, a hat, sunglasses and time. Look around. Sit and think about the years and people who have been at that site.

I was looking at it in the view of the city of Agrigento laing behind and was thinking that even after 1000years this will still be standing, but I was not sure about the city with nowadays architecture.
