Il tempio della Concordia è un tempio greco dell'antica città di Akragas sito nella Valle dei Templi di Agrigento. Tuttora non si sa a chi fosse dedicato questo tempio, ma il nome di "Tempio della Concordia" è documentato da uno dei primi storici siciliani: Tommaso Fazello. Questo tempio è di tipo periptero con cella doppia in antis. Insieme al Partenone, è considerato il tempio dorico meglio conservato al mondo. Il nome del tempio si deve al ritrovamento nei paraggi di un'iscrizione latina con dedica alla concordia degli agrigentini che in realtà non presenta altri legami con esso. Innalzato intorno al 430 a.C. È un quadrilatero di 19,758 metri per 42,230, poco più di un doppio quadrato che occupa una superficie di 843,38 m² e sviluppa un'altezza di 13,481 metri. Ha una pianta di tipo periptero, visto che oltre alla cella centrale doppia in antis (con la presenza di nao e pronao) c'è anche un colonnato perimetrale. Costruito su un massiccio basamento destinato a superare i dislivelli del terreno roccioso, per lo stato di conservazione è considerato uno degli edifici sacri d'epoca classica più notevoli del mondo greco (430 a.C.). Su un crepidoma di quattro gradini (m 39,44x16,91) si erge la conservatissima peristasi di 6x13 colonne (porticato che circonda il naos), alte m. 6,67 e caratterizzate da venti scanalature e armoniosa entasi verso i 2/3 (curvatura della sezione verticale), sormontata da epistilio, fregio di triglifi e metope e cornice a mutuli; conservati sono anche in maniera integrale i timpani. Alla cella, preceduta da pronao in antis (come l'opistodomo) si accede attraverso un gradino; ben conservati sono i piloni con le scale d'accesso al tetto e, sulla sommità delle pareti della cella e nei blocchi della trabeazione della peristasi, gli incassi per la travatura lignea di copertura. L'esterno e l'interno del tempio erano rivestiti di stucco con la necessaria policromia. La sima mostrava gronde con protomi leonine e la copertura prevedeva tegole marmoree. La sua struttura fu rafforzata per la trasformazione in chiesa cristiana (VI sec.) che comportò anzitutto un rovesciamento dell'orientamento antico, per cui si abbatté il muro di fondo della cella, si chiusero gli intercolunni e si praticarono dodici aperture arcuate nelle pareti della cella, così da costituire le tre navate canoniche, le due laterali nella peristasi e quella centrale coincidente con la cella. Distrutto poi l'altare d'epoca classica e sistemate negli angoli a est le sacrestie, l'edificio divenne organismo basilicale virtualmente perfetto. Le fosse scavate all'interno e all'esterno della chiesa si riferiscono a sepolture alto-medievali, secondo la consuetudine collocate in stretto rapporto con la basilica.

Dear Alessandro, thank you very much this is a shot of 2016 that I exhumed in these quarantine days. I was in Agrigento as a boy and the valley was very different. I do not hide that I lingered since I was the decided whether to post the shot you see or the color version, in the end just for the somewhat retro atmosphere I chose this. In my opinion black and white has a great charm that I considered more appropriate to the circumstance. Co and you definitely noticed in the background you see the city.
Thank yourself dear friend for the time you dedicate to me.
A warm greeting
Guglielmo

Dear Loris, thanks to your attention I do not hide from you that one of the reasons that prompted me to post this photo is just to return to Sicily with imagination, given the period we are going through.
I hope you have a good day
Guglielmo
