The acropolis at Agrigento, which is known as Akrakas in Greek, is now lost beneath the modern town, but a series of stunning Doric temples remain on a ridge on the southern side of the town, bringing the classical world to life. These ancient monuments, which rise above picturesque, arcadian fields of olive and almond trees on one side and the Mediterranean coastline on the other, are a spectacular sight, especially at night, when they are atmospherically illuminated.
Selinunte had a short life that lasted from 650 BC until its destruction by the Carthaginians in 409 BC, but it flourished long enough for an acropolis and seven temples to be constructed. The largest of these is actually longer than Agrigento's Tempio di Zeus Olimpico, but not as wide. Although the ruins at Selinunte are not as well preserved as those at Agrigento, these silent sentinels, by a dazzling blue sea, invite contemplation, study, and wonder.
Of the eight monumental temples built here between the 6th and 5th centuries BC, the Tempio della Concordia is considered to be the best preserved in the world after the Theseion in Athens, and its harmony with nature is emphasized by its warm earthy colors, which change with the moving sun and shadows of the day. The Tempio de Hera is the most romantic of the ruins at Agrigento, while the uncompleted Tempio di Zeus Olimpico, which is the size of a football field, was the largest Doric temple ever built. Its columns included 38 giant human figures, one of which lies in repose on the site. It requires the better part of a day to visit the Valley of Temples and its other treasures, which include the agora (market place), shrines, catacombs, sacrificial altars, a villa, museums, and a church.
The cities of Sicily were the greatest in all of Magna Graecia (Greater Greece) before the Acropolis was built. The first large-scale temples were erected and they can still be seen on the southwest coast in Agrigento and Selinunte in Sicily, Italy.
Selinunte, the furthest west of Magna Graecia's colonies, is as sun-bleached as nearby North Africa. This vast archaeological site was the largest in Greece and lies between two rivers, Belice and Modione, by the sea on the edge of a fertile plain far enough from the nearest resort, Marinella, to have remained unspoiled. The site takes its name from selinon, the Greek word for "wild parsley," which still grows in the fields of wild flowers surrounding the monuments.
