The temple is covered by plastic, to protect from rain. It's found in a remote location, on top of a mountain in the middle of nowhere but scenery is spectacular.

Well worth the long drive to get there. The temple is as well preserved as its cousins in Agrigento. Also, as it is under a tent you can visit at the hottest hours.
