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.

San Nicola Reviews & Ratings

  • Love this old small church. There is a long waiting list of you want to te married here.

  • Antique

  • Lovely small church

  • Chiesa elegantissima nella sua semplicità architettonica, posizionata nella stupenda zona archeologica della valle dei templi ad Agrigento... uscendo dalla chiesa si possono ammirare di fronte le rovine di alcuni templi, quasi come un balcone affacciato sulla nostra storia! Dal punto di vista musicale la chiesa è caratterizzata da una ottima che permette a musicisti e cantanti di essere nascosti alla vista, ma ugualmente apprezzabili nei loro virtuosismi armonici... la chiesa è caratterizzata da pareti in tufo a vista, che la rendono elegante e rustica allo stesso tempo...😊

  • Nel visitare la valle dei templi, occorre fare un piccolo salto per visitare la chiesa di San Nicola e tutto ciò che ci sta intorno. Consigliato se avete una giornata intera da trascorrere nella valle dei templi.
