Located just a few meters from the Archaeological Museum of Agrigento, this church appeals to the want of simplicity. Built by the Cistercian monks in the 13th century, the structure displays Romanesque as well as Gothic style. It is built from the same golden rocks as the Valley of Temples, as the unfinished Temple of Zeus provided easy material. This golden yellow stone charms the interiors, making them bright, and pleasant. Outside the church is a lovely view of the ruins of an amphitheater and a garden that overlooks the Valley of Temples.
