At 120 meters above sea level, on the highest part of the hill, in the middle of the 5th century BC, this temple was attributed to Juno (Hera for the Greeks), goddess of fertility, wife of Zeus; Here that the spouses of Agrigento celebrated their wedding.
The temple today has still 25 columns.
Originally them were 34.
Inside, between two columns in the entrance and the two that close the rear compartment, there is the cell that housed the statue of the deity.
