Ruins of Greek temples in Italy

Two years ago I was at my friend in Sicily. It is an amazing island located between Europe and Africa.There a lot of famous landmarks there. But I admired ruins of Greek temples which were preserved for centuries. 


Some of the best-preserved ancient Greek temples in the world—yes, even better than those in Greece itself—dot a ridge near the modern city of Agrigento. They’re the remnants of Akragas, a powerful and storied city founded by the Greeks in the 6th century B.C.















I got these photos from my friend yesterday.  you can see almonds trees are  in blooming - so it means spring is there and in the backgrounds ruins of the Greek temple.

  1. I saw some Roman (not Greek) ruins in Morocco many years ago. Fascinating that these structures have lasted this long.

  4. It looks like a fabulous place to visit. At many of the sites in Greece, you can no longer go in the ruins, is it the same way here?
