The B&B Terrazze di Montelusa is located just in the heart of the historical center of Agrigento, in a
picturesque little square close to the Via Atenea, the main street of the town for shopping and strolling.
Agrigento is known all over the world for the archeological site called Valley of the Temples, a UNESCO World
Heritage site. It holds the ruins of the ancient town Akragas, founded in 580 b. C. by Greek settlers.
Visitors happen to feel like plunging in the past when they walk among the monumental ruins of the temples
once dedicated to Juno, Hercules and Olympian Jupiter. The night walk represents a deeply amazing experience:
it is organised by the Archeological Park Board with the use of lights and sounds.
The center of Agrigento is also full of interesting signs of the past centuries: churches from the Middle
Ages (e.g.: the big Norman Cathedral on the crest of a hill; St. Mary of the Greeks, built upon the ruins
of a Greek temple; the Holy Spirit Church with the dependent convent dating from the 14th century), churches
in Baroque style (St. Francesco, St. Lorenzo, St. Domenico), buildings of the aristocratic class and a magnificent
theatre, all of them from the 19th century and, last but not least, the Rabbato, district of Arab origin with
its maze of fascinating alleys.
