Temple of Concord
This Greek site (the Greek town of Akragas) covers an extensive area and also has a large museum attached to it. The decision to take two days to discover its treasures went down well with our guests for the week - Mum & Gerry. The first day was spent visiting the temples along the Via Sacra. They were all in different states of repair - the most complete being the temple of Concord.
Temple of Juno
Temple of Herakles
Telemon (Atlas) from the temple of Olympian Zeus
Temple of Castor and Pollux
The second day took us to the museum and the Hellenistic-Roman quarter of the site. This first picture shows the scale and size of the Telemon and the artistic impression below shows where they featured in the temple. This must have been a wonder of the world.
Gerry's favourite piece in the museum a terracotta vessel of the Egyptian god Bes
