Agrigento

The enchanting Valley of the Temples, the characteristic historic center and the nearby beaches await you for your holiday in Sicily!
 

The Albachiara b & b is located in the magnificent city of Agrigento, located on two neighboring hills, the Girgenti hill and the Rupe Atenea. A historic city of millennial origins that has changed four names throughout history; for the Normans it was "Girgenti" which was the official name of the city until 1927. In the streets and alleys of Agrigento, full of history, it is possible to see Greek and Roman testimonies in every corner of the city.

Agrigento extends between ancient ruins and baroque architecture, crystal clear waters and long golden beaches and is the perfect combination of art, cuisine, history and relaxation. Part of the priceless wealth of Agrigento is found in the exquisite typical products and local gastronomy, offering tourists new experiences to be admired and enjoyed in an ideal setting to be photographed.

This Sicilian city contains numerous art specimens among which we must not forget the Norman Cathedral, situated on the top of the hill with its majestic bell tower, and the Monastery of Santo Spirito to which the church of the same name is connected. The main street of Agrigento is "Via Atenea" where the famous "Palazzo Celauro" rises, in which the famous German writer Goethe stayed, who was struck by the beauty and cultural richness of the city. 

The almond blossom festival

Among the most renowned appointments in the Agrigentino panorama, the Sagra del Mandorlo in Fiore stands out without a doubt. The festival, as usual, is repeated at the beginning of March each year and lasts about a week. The event, born in 1934, aims to celebrate the arrival of spring with the magnificent flourishing of almond trees, symbol of the return to life. The party has increasingly taken on an international reach and welcomes, every year, thousands of tourists and folk groups from all over the world.

The Almond Blossom Festival starts with a sunset visit to the famous Valley of the Times, followed by the lighting of the "torch of friendship" in front of the famous Temple of Concord. The event ends in the magnificent Valley of the Temples with the parade of folk groups with our typical Sicilian carts and the different bands that will involve you in an experience that will leave you breathless.

This festival includes, every year, a series of side events that will entertain and amaze you, including: art exhibitions, photo contests, culinary competitions and the now renowned "International Folklore Festival". For lovers of typical products of our land there will be numerous tastings of almonds in order to let everyone know about our precious Sicilian product.
