Agrigento’s Temple of Heracles


These massive doric columns are from the 6th century BC Temple of Heracles at Agrigento’s Valley of the Temples (Valle dei Templi). The eight of them were reconstructed in 1924. The ancient city of Akragas was established by the Greeks and then conquered by the Romans, who renamed it Agrigentum.
