This was the corner of the very impressive Temple of Castor and Pollux from the 5th century. However, now only four Doric columns which were restored in the 19th century remain.

Very little remains, with only these few columns, but an interesting part of the site to visit. Nearby there's a modern bridge between two parts of the site, which fits as a good contrast with the antiquities.

Coming from the southern entrance, this is in if the first temples that pops in your way. The view is pretty wide as well.

It is really cool to be able to walk among ancient ruins and literally touch the stone and marble segments of pillars and other parts of the ruins

Exquisite architecture, meticulously restored, the details and proportions are so beautiful. Breathtaking temple, the sacredness of the place sings despite the hordes of tourists (many European!). Surely us moderns can't build any better... humbling and transcendent.

Only some columns still stand; however, this temple is part of a whole, so take a look and use your imagination!

The Temple of Dioscuri is one of the seven temples in the valley of the temples at Agrigento. The only standing part is a modern reconstruction, and it's not of much interest.

This is another temple from the valley of the temples in Agrigento that worth to be seen. All the temples are very interesting.
