Agrigento is a hilly city on the southwestern coast of Sicily. It is known for the ruins of the ancient city of Akragas and the Valley of the Temples, a vast archaeological site with well-preserved Greek temples. On the outskirts of the modern city is the Agrigento Regional Archaeological Museum which houses artifacts and a telamon (giant male statue). To the west is the Scala dei Turchi, an unusual white stepped cliff overlooking sandy beaches.
