Valley of Temples

Temple of Concordia

This is an archaeological park consisting of 8 Greek temples, in Sicily, all on the same mountain crest. The conditions of the temples are varied – they are from 510 – 430 BC.

It is a site to behold as you drive up and see the first temple. It is a very long, hot, walk along the crest to the other temples. Sadly, again due to time constraints, I didn’t see everything here. I saw one temple that was in excellent condition, and another that is mostly gone.

Valley of Temples is in the book.

There is also some very interesting art scattered along the path. A giant green butt, one-half of a head, a giant man, etc. I didn’t hire a guide here either, so I don’t really know the history of the art…..but it does seem more recent than the temples.
