The monumentalization of Akragas

The senses tell The Temple of Juno

The scent of the sea

The Temple of Hera Lacinia stands on the Hill of the Temples and its entire southern side has an unrestricted view of the sea.
That’s why in the morning, when the sea breeze rises and blows towards land, the temple is pervaded by the salty scent of the sea air, creating a characteristic atmosphere.

The vineyards of the Valley

In the area behind the Temple of Hera Lacinia there are several vineyards that produce the Diodoros wine.
This red wine has a strong but balanced flavour that releases all the flavours and aromas held by the thousand-year-old history of the Valley of the Temples.
