The Girgentana goat

The Girgentana goat is a typical species of goat in the Agrigento area.
They can be recognised from other species by their twisted, spiral horns that give them a unique elegance.
Thanks to the Park’s actions, the endangered animal inhabits these places once more.
A small sheepfold near the Temple of Concordia houses five of them.

The Girgento goat
The Girgento goat is a typical specimen of the area of Agrigento. Its hair is typically long and not woolly, of white or yellowish colouration, but it is not rare to find specimens with darker spots especially on the back, on the grey or on the black. The main feature that makes it possible to distinguish Girgentan goats from other varieties are the horns, long and elegantly twisted on themselves.
