last ones standing
It’s hard to find words to describe what I saw in the Valley of the Temples. And my photos don’t do it justice, either.
These are the remains of the Temple of Heracles; it is considered to be the most ancient of the temples, dating to the end of the 6th century BCE. It was destroyed by an earthquake and all that’s left are eight columns.
(To put this into perspective a little bit, the city I live in dates all the way back to 1884.)

Ah, Agrigento! It certainly is quite a place
It was indeed. EVERY place I went in Sicily fell into the category of “quite a place”!
