Viale della Vittoria, the elegant urban lounge with a view of the Valley of the Temples and the sea, was created at the end of the 19th century to provide the city with a picturesque and elegant viewpoint. Within a few decades Viale della Vittoria, flanked by footpaths and adorned with two rows of large trees, became the setting for public gardens, the largest being Villa Bonfiglio, and various buildings, thus becoming the heart of the stately “Girgenti” (The Sicilian name for Agrigento). It is the ideal starting point to discover the old town with its many churches, museums and art galleries.
Agrigento’s old town is actually full of many outstanding attractions: the Cathedral, with the nearby MUDIA- Diocesan Museum and the adjacent eighteenth century Bibilioteca Lucchesiana; the medieval church of Santa Maria dei Greci built on the foundations of a Greek temple and the beautiful Monastery of the Holy Spirit with the characteristic Chiaramontani arches. Via Atenea, lined with cafes, restaurants and shops, is the main street of the ancient city and walking along it you can visit other interesting places: the exhibition spaces of “FAM – Fabbriche Chiaramontane Galleria Permanente d’Arte Moderna” created in the area below the Basilica of St. Francis; the baroque Church of San Lorenzo, decorated with stucco works by Serpotta; the former building of the Fillippini, now home to the municipal art gallery where you can admire the works of Master landscape painter Francesco Lojacono, and the Pirandello Theatre: a 19th century architectural jewel dedicated to the illustrious Nobel Prize winner for Literature from Agrigento.
