Archaeological and Scenic Park of the Valley of the Temples of Agrigento

The Valley of the Temples is characterized by the mesmerizing remains of some ten temples, three sanctuaries and a vast area of necropoles; hydraulic works, fortifications; part of a Hellenic-Roman Quarter. All this corresponds to the ancient city of Akragas, the monumental and original colony of modern-day Agrigento. The whole area has been on the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites since 1997.
 
“Pietro Griffo” Regional Archaeological Museum
Over five thousand objects are displayed in chronological and topographical order illustrating the history of the territory of Agrigento from the prehistoric age to the Greco-Roman period.
Must-sees of the museum are the Ephebus of Agrigento, the colossal telamon of the Olympieion, and a collection of pottery that boasts the Krater Depicting Patroclus’ Death.
 
Regional House-Museum of Luigi Pirandello
Exhibited in the home of this Sicilian playwright, author, and winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature is a collection of objects from his private and literary life: from the posters of some of his most famous plays to the first editions of his books with autograph dedications, letters, photographs, and other family heirlooms.
 
Heraclea Minoa
The ruins of this settlement lie atop a spectacular calcareous rocky spur, which stretches seawards to the south, drops straight down to the shore to the east, and to the west slopes down towards the valley of the River Platani and the mouth of the river itself.
First settled in prehistoric times, the city developed during the Mycenaean period and was later colonized by the Greeks. The view of the theatre overlooking the sea is breathtaking.
