... oh, it's free as part of a European Union/Unesco project for sailors coming into various ports around Sicily and Italy. So this morning we were taken to visit the magnificent Doric temples at Agrigento. These temples were built around 2500 years ago and are well worth a visit.
However the temperature is around 35 degrees throughout the day and even the wind is really warm! We have no complaints. We are falling in love with Sicily.
... they were all filled with water. Local people on the stairs looked very sad and we fear they had to cancel the activity that was planned for the evening.
Back to Agrigento for a few refreshing moments in the pool and then diner in the same place again with the artists. Interesting conversations about figurative and non-figurative art and how the art scene works in Belgium. So, again it was late an no time left for Blogging.
... and there were strict signs of no entry, moreover, a number of people were working with heavy equipment to clean an old square. So my entrance was limited. But we also went to the other gate and there it only said you were not supposed to take anything from the site in remembrance of the victims.

... quick refresh in Agrigento (agri/country & gento/people) & off to the Valley of temples with our guide Claudia, the area was first settled by the Greeks in 751BC, there were 300,000 people living here, of which 150,000 were slaves,, they constructed several temples but when the christian came in & they didn't convert the temple it was pulled down.
1. Tempio della Giunone - faced easy, built in 450-470BC then devoted in the 6th century AD
... views from the top, but also a little windy.
I was worried that Zara might blow off because there was no barrier on the edge.
We sat for awhile and marveled at this amazing natural wonder!
The second interesting attraction was the Valley of the Temples.
This is up on a ridge with many Greek temples and ruins dating from 500 BC.
Very impressive historical ruins.
