description

Agrigento is a city on the southern coast of Sicily, Italy. It is renowned as the site of the ancient Greek city of Akragas, with a population estimate of 200,000 - 800,000 before 406 BC.

Ancient Akragas covers a huge area — much of which is still unexcavated — but is famous for the 'Valley of the Temples'. These Temples constitute some of the largest and best-preserved ancient Greek buildings outside of Greece itself.

Below is a list of the Temples.
You can read as many or as few as you want.
You can read one of each or focus on two or three sights.

On February's thread she asked for suggestions. I had suggested it having visited there many years ago. Lanelle asked for some info which I provided and she chose Agrigento. Now I have to see if I can find and scan some photos we took while there.
It's worth a visit if you ever travel to Sicily.

Pretty much what JoAnne said. January was the first month for this particular challenge and I picked a random city.

When I was looking for February's city, I thought of my daughter. She spent 8 months in Xi'an, and she was able to help me find places to visit.

I enjoyed sharing pictures of her so much, I thought maybe you all would have pictures you would be willing to post of places you've been. JoAnne suggested Agrigento. I can't wait to see the pictures of their visit.

Towards the end of the month I'll ask for ideas for next month's city. Hopefully people will have photos to share.

JennyR (mortimerknits) This is my first time participating and I have a question. If I start a book before March 1, but finish it after the first may I use it in the challenge or do I need to wait and start the book on the first?

Thank you.
