Valley of the Temples (Valle dei Templi) : Michelin's recommendations
Do not search for the valley! The temples (a dozen of them) erected in 5 BC, are located on the ridge to the south of the town, . Set on fire by the Carthaginians in 406, they were restored in their original style by the Romans. Earthquakes, fanatical Christian iconoclasm and the need to retrieve stones for other buildings led to there destruction and only the temple of the Concorde is in a good state, probably due to its conversion into a church in the 6C.
