This temple owes its name to the greek god of fire.
It dates back to the 5th century BC, but inside it is enclosed a pre-existing temple (560-550 BC) preserved by the builders of Agrigento, who incorporated it into the cell and whose roof decoration was rebuilt.
Surrounded by 34 columns, of which only two remain visible, it is distinguished from other temples by the presence of rounded edges between the grooves of the columns; someone thinks that there has been an interruption of the building's works, as confirmed by the presence, at the lower end of the column shaft, of a non-fluted circular band.
Furthermore, in the south-west side, it is possible to observe two stems of columns without grooves.
The temple is part of the UNESCO heritage.
