Perched on the hill of Girgenti is this pious place of devotion. The Chiesa di Santa Maria deiGreci was first built as the temple of Athena or Zeus Atabirios in the 1200s. Thus, the strong presence of Greek architecture can be seen. What started off as a Greek temple is now a church. It is the perfect example of religion through different civilizations. It is blissful and interesting to walk along the church and see the Greek pillars lined up on both sides. Some part of the floor of inside the church is covered with glass, and you can see the original temple floor. Still holding the structure of the old art, it is a great amalgamation of the best of both worlds.
