Travel Tips for Agrigento

The Regional Archaeological Museum

by isolina_it

The Museum (Museo Archeologico Regionale), established in the monumental area of the bouleuterion and ekklesiasterion, on the hillock of San Nicola, and incorporating part of the convent adjoining the church of the same name, is one of the foremost archaeological museums in Sicily. The material is arranged chronologically and divided into two main sectors, once concerning Agrigento and its territory and the other concerning part of the archaeological sites of the provinces of Caltanissetta and Gela, which have their own museums.

Sanctuary of the Chthonic Deities ("Dioscuri")

by hquittner

This fragment of a temple is a misnomer due to its resmblance to the famous fragment in the Forum in Rome. It was artistically (and imitatively) assembled from pieces lying here. Since it was done(1836) the image has become the icon of CLASSIC SICILY (and given the name Temple of Castor and Pollux.We did not feel hardy enough to walk out to see the ruins of the several buildings and altars,, or to go to the last one either. Little did we realize we would get closer to them at lunch. Hence the classic tourist picture.

"Valle Dei Templi"

In the Valley of the Temples are the ruins of numerous temples but also necropoli, houses, streets and everything else one would expect to find in an ancient city. There is a small amphitheatre, as well as several auditoria, and a fine archeological museum. Unfortunately, most of the temples at Agrigento are in ruins, with pieces strewn about, and several appear to have never even been completed.

"Some suggestions...."

Sample the local cuisine if you have a chance. Except for a visit to the Valley of the Temples and the archeological museum nearby, and perhaps a quick glimpse of the cathedral and San Nicola if you're a real medievalist, it probably isn't worth spending more than a day in Agrigento. Since this part of Sicily is torrid from the end of June through late September, we suggest, if possible, that you visit Agrigento during April, May or early June, when the fields are still green and the wildflowers are blossoming.
