After walking around in the Valley of Temples on a hot muggy day after a thundershower, we stumbled up this amazing garden. We felt exhausted going down the steps to the entrance, not sure we could even appreciate a garden. However, we were met by a young enthusiastic woman who told us about the garden and it's history, convincing us it would be worthwhile. My husband noticed an expresso machine behind her and asked if they served coffee. Only if asked, for a small donation. Just what we needed! She took us around the back, to a little shaded area, and served us water, as well as expresso. Nicely rested and refreshed, we were ready to venture down into the garden. Not a large garden, it offers cooling shade, beautiful views of Agrigento and a closeup view of a temple ruin. A path meanders along a stream, a citrus grove and various other fruit trees, some amazing ancient olive trees, and various other local plants. Wonderful ancient atmosphere. We took our time and much enjoyed the experience.
