Itinerary A

[5]Colour contrasts

The Temple of Demeter is located on the Rupe Atenea, the highest point of ancient Akragas. When admiring the structure from the back, you’ll take in the sight of the apse, which rests on the ancient ruins of the Greek temple, creating an unusual contrast between ancient and modern.
The place is a fusion of colours that shine in the sun: from the grey rock of the ancient temple to the yellow ochre bricks of the Church, which is juxtaposed with a bright red rocky wall. From here, when you look at the structure of the building, you are captivated by the boundless panorama that stretches from the green valley to the sea, dressed in a dazzling blue.
