Roman road and modern city of Agrigento

Looking east, center is old Roman Road, bissecting the ancient city

Agrigento was badly damaged in 1943 when the Allies landed in Sicily and there was a great number of Sicilian casualties. Thus, the unattractive rebuilt city you see but if you look a little more carefully you can see their ancient heritage, i.e. this road.
