"Girgenti, ancient Agrigento, offers a combination of the most surprising temples that has been offered for contemplation. On the long tract of rocky coast, nude, a fiery red colour and without a blade of grass nor a shrub, looking over the sea, the beach and the port, the great stone profile of the three superb temples is cut out against the blue sky of the hot towns. They seem to be suspended in the air, in the middle of a magnificent and desolate landscape."
Guy de Maupassant
