My Italian Grand Tour - Sicily: 2

After leaving Agrigento, we headed west long the southern Mediterranean coastline of Sicily towards Selinunte (ancient Greek Selinous) visiting the very large Archaeological Park. There are a large number of temples there simply labelled A, B, C, D, E, F, G etc as the gods they are dedicated to are unknown. 541 more words
