Agrigento - Remains of the Temple of Heracles
The Temple of Heracles, who was one of the most venerated deities in the ancient Akragas. It is the most ancient in the Valley: destroyed by an earthquake, it consists today of only eight columns.
Stylistically, the temple belongs to the last years of the 6th century BC. One hypothesis is that the temple was begun before the Battle of Himera, to be completed only in the following decades.
