While there is little to see in Porto Empedocle except the 16th century Quadrangular Tower of Carlo V, the jewel is Agrigento and the Valley of the Temples. Numerous remarkable monuments are present all over Agrigento including the Cathedral and the 13th century Church of Saint Nicholas – now an Archeological Museum. However, it is the Valley of the Temples, built in the 5th century BC, which is the most significant evidence of the Greek civilization in Sicily. In a countryside of blooming almond trees, enjoy the wonderful ruins of temples which even after centuries still keep their architectural grandeur intact.
