At the beginning of the twentieth century, Baron La Lumia, the owner of rich citrus groves overlooked by the Temples, left a plot of land – as was customary at the time – to his coachman, Mr. Spina, as payment for his services. The latter thus founded his own house, traditionally built in tuff ashlars, tuff being the same “yellowish” stone that was used in constructing the Temples. Sometime in the forties, one of his sons, an important chef at the school in Sorrento, converted the building into a restaurant. Because of its location and its culinary art, it became a destination for high-ranking visitors, American officers, actors, and illustrious guests of the City of Agrigento, etc. Some of the elderly residents in Agrigento still have fond memories from this time and ask to visit the Dimora dei Templi to relive their past experiences.

In 2018 we arrived, lucky heirs of this long family history. Having seen the region’s charm, we decided to dedicate the Dimora (which is Italian for home) to hospitality and began a respectful restoration of the house, taking its oldest elements into consideration. Here, then, is the slow re-emergence of the ancient cementine from the floor that immediately imposed itself as the keystone of the new B&B’s style and the inspiration behind the logo.

The Star, the Red Lily and the Pomegranate, three types of designs recovered from the ancient floors, now characterise the bathrooms of the three rooms which also bear their names. History and traditional style are now mixed with modern and comfortable furnishings so you can indulge and relax: each room is equipped with Wi-Fi, LED TV, minibar, Daikin air conditioning, bathroom with complimentary toiletries, change of towels, hairdryer, safe, kettle, and mosquito net. Finally, the jewel of the Dimora: the panoramic terrace. Having also been renovated, it offers a privileged vantage point over the Temples. Here, in fact, it is possible to observe them in proud and venerable contrast with the colours of the Agrigento sky and the Mediterranean Sea; a superb panorama that offers an unforgettable breakfast by day, inspires relaxing aperitifs at sunset, and evokes romantic toasts in the evening.
