Temple of Concord in the Valle dei Templi, Agrigento, Sicily

The Concord Temple, built in the 5th century BC, is one of the best preserved Doric temples due in part to an upgrade it received in the 4th century AD.  It was also restored (again) in 1748.  The Valley of the Temples was a great attraction during our brief visit to the southern Sicily area of Agrigento.  The  modern bronze sculptures definitely complemented the incredible ancient architecture.
