Temple of Castor and Pollux

Recommended
According to tradition, this small temple is called the Temple of the Dioscuri after the non-identical twins Castor and Pollux. All that remains of the temple are four columns, rebuilt in the 19C, plus a section of the entablature, although this has not stopped the temple from becoming the symbol of Agrigento. On the right, note the relics of a sanctuary dedicated to the gods of the underworld - the Chtonic gods.
