Reviewed 1 September 2013

You can get there from Via Athenea by the stairs or take a cab. The church is built on top of greco-roman ruins. My best friend got married there...beautiful!

“Incredible”
Reviewed 22 June 2013

This church is built on the foundations of and old Greek temple which you can still see, columns included. Try to get a guide from the side entrance to give you some explanations because there is to much history in this just one place.

“Interesting site”
Reviewed 17 April 2013

The current church is a nice little building but the views offered to the ancient temple beneath are even more impresive

“Full of peace and calm”
Reviewed 3 February 2013

This was the former Orthodox Cathedral which was built over a former temple (possibly Athena) and incorperated some of the original columns. The church was constructed in the 12th century and is set in the Greek quarter of Agrigento. Its a very pretty church set in an area which is made up of congested streets. Well worth the visit if you are nearby.
