The Temple of Heracles.

I have moved on to Sicily and Agrigento, from Paestum.

Agrigento is a hilltop city on Sicily's south west shore, known for the ruins of the ancient city of Akragas in the Valley of the Temples.

The Temple of Heracles is the most ancient temple in Agrigento; its origins date back to the end of the 6th century BC.

Recent interventions have been aimed at conserving the building.

Another Temple in the w/s.
Thanks for looking.
