Agrigento, Sicily, 2013

Near the city of Agrigento (in Southwestern Sicily) lies what is referred to as  The Valley of the Temples  — although the well-preserved temples are in fact on a wide  ridge  (not a  valley ) facing the ocean. The temples are from the 6th-5th century BC city of Akragas, a Greek colony, part of  Magna Grecia  (or  Greater Greece ).
