Temple of Jupiter in Valley of Temples
José Luiz - CC4.0
The ruins of the Temple of Olympian Jupiter, also known as the temple of Zeus, are located in the ancient city of Akragas, in the archaeological park of the Valley of the Temples in Agrigento.
They are evidence of one of the largest Doric temples of classical antiquity. Unfortunately, the area, probably already damaged by earthquakes in ancient times, was used as a quarry since the Middle Ages and in the 1700s for the construction of the Porto Empedocle pier, so only the ruins remain of the temple.
