Agrigento

From the Wikipedia: "Agrigento [aɡriˈdʒɛnto] About this sound listen (help·info) (Sicilian: Girgenti or Giurgenti) is a city on the southern coast of Sicily, Italy, and capital of the province of Agrigento. It is renowned as the site of the ancient Greek city of Akragas (Ἀκράγας; also known as Agrigentum or Acragas in Latin and Kirkent or Jirjent in Arabic), one of the leading cities of Magna Graecia during the golden age of Ancient Greece with population estimates in the range of 200,000 to 800,000 before 406 BC."

I here show pictures, edited from scans of slides that date from the 1980's. They were taken during several visits. At that time the interior of the temples could still be visited. I also show some of the metopes in the museum, as well as some frescos. I suppose things look different now. I am editing thousands of these slides, only afterwards will I add captions. If you have information, please write a comment.

Note that at Other antique cities you can find over 80 galleries of antique cities I visited and took pictures of in Turkey, Syria and Jordan, apart from the Italy ones (a few so far, but growing as I have thousands of slides).
