This week, Michael Kourosh takes us to Agrigento, Sicily, to see the Valley of Temples and to Orcutt with Adam McKaig to tour the Orcutt Trade Center.
Michael tells us about the history of the Valley of the Temples in Agrigento, Sicily. It is one of the most outstanding complexes of ancient Greek art and architecture outside of Greece. The Valley of Temples is recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Learn about a beautifully woven textile from Ancient Greece. This prayer rug is made of silk and golden thread on a linen backing and is embellished with intricate designs of Turkish tulips, golden embroidery, chickens, and interlocking dragons.
Adam McKaig, a local real estate agent, gives us a tour of The Orcutt Trade Center, which is a historical building for sale in the cute town of Orcutt.
