We walked down to the small harbour after our return from Selinunte. There didn't seem to be many fish being caught, though the small boats were coming and going and we could see them dragging nets not far from the shore. Not sure if they have caught our dinner yet.

They are still quite grand and imposing buildings set into a rocky landscape surrounded by olive and almond trees. And while the modern city of Agrigento is clearly visible on the distant valley side you can still get a strong sense of the ancient city set out before you. It was hot though and we were keen to go to a beach on ...
