The Temple of Concordia, in its majestic integrity, is a spectacle that fascinates and elicits respect.
The imposing Doric columns, surmounted by capitals that are still intact, support the trabeation without any apparent effort.
The characteristic yellow ochre colour of the Agrigentine stone used to build the temple seems to light up in even warmer tones under the light of the sunset, making it even more evocative.
Let’s go back in time to when mass was celebrated in the Temple of Concordia, when it was a building of Christian worship.
Just as would happen during the celebration of pagan rites, within it emanated the perfumes of incense that bestowed solemnity to moments of prayer, among the soft and vibrant glow of oil lamps.
The entire grand building, supported by majestic Doric columns, was draped in vibrant colours at sunset and sweetened with fragrances that invited reflection.
In recent years it has been discovered that the milk of the Girgentana goats produces fine cheese with a delicate yet particular taste given by the mixture of typical Sicilian flavours.
Some examples are the mbriaca , a caciotta cheese that is immersed in Nero d’Avola wine; cinniri cheese, which is left to rest in the ashes of almond wood; and ficarra, a stracchino cheese refined in fig leaves.
