Valley of the Temples, Agrigento

It’s my first day back at school today, teaching new levels that I’ve never taught before. So to distract myself from the terror excitement, I’m thinking back to a day a few weeks ago in Agrigento, when my parents and I visited the Valley of the Temples. Another first, both for me and for them – their first time in Sicily and my first in Agrigento. It went down well on all counts, so here, for your delectation, are some of the photos. Enjoy!

    Lovely stuff, miss (and I mean that in a teaching ‘Please Miss!’ kind of way). Did you see the house the Englishman built in the middle of the temples back 100 years ago or so? Dubious planning permission!
    Here is my Valley of the Temples piece, just to complete, like!

  2. Yeah, that made me laugh – “oh, yes, I love this area so much and want to preserve it for all history – by building a modern villa right in the middle of it all …”
