Live Virtual Guided Tour
Agrigento and the Valley of Temples
Agrigento was founded by the Greeks in Sicily with the name of Akagras, as in a nearby river there were crabs from which the city derives its name. Later became the roman Agrigentum and in the middle ages what was left of the inhabitants moved to the highest part of the ancient city creating the town of Girgenti. Protected by a long wall the city’s pride were its temples, some among the largest ever built in the ancient world. Now, this area is known as the Valley of the Temples and it’s a Unesco world heritage site. We will discover its story and monuments with 3d models and reconstructions and we will be able to virtually enjoy the history and the atmosphere of this magnificent Sicilian gem!
