You will visit the temples which stand on the high ridge overlooking the sea, walking the Sacred Way and discovering the magnificence of the Concordia Temple, which was converted into a Christian church in the 6th century and as a result spared from much of the devastation which afflicted the site over the centuries. You will walk between the Temple of Zeus ruins, the largest temple built by the Greeks but destroyed to build the harbor of the nearby town of Porto Empedocle.
