Itinerary A

[5]Colossal dimensions

In ancient times, when sailors passed by Akragas, they would have been ecstatic and impressed.
In the astonishing belt of temples that embraced the city there was one temple of colossal dimensions that stood out from the rest.
The structure’s bright colours – red, white and blue – increased its immensity.
There was no doubt about it: this was the temple dedicated to Olympian Zeus, king of the gods.
