To Agrigento The Temple Topper

Founded in the 6th century BC, Agrigento was one of the largest and richest Greek colonies of Magna Graecia. After being sacked by the Carthaginians in 406 BC, the city never fully recovered, and passed under Roman, Vandal, Goth, Byzantine, Arab, and Norman rule in the following centuries. Overlooking the UNESCO-listed Valley of the Temples, modern Agrigento is ringed by unattractive residential towers. However, break through this shell and you’ll find the city has managed to preserve some of its historic charms. Walking the via Atenea, you’ll be treated to plenty of picturesque buildings and shops selling the city’s signature sheep ricotta ice-cream. The city’s 11th century Norman Gothic Cathedral presents in interesting amalgam of Arabic, Gothic, Renaissance, and Baroque architecture, and houses a museum stocked with rich relics and art. In the Agrigento Regional Archaeological Museum, Grecco-Roman artefacts from the nearby archaeological site, and relics from the even older indigenous civilization are on display.
