Segesta

Segesta, an antique site located in the western side of Sicily, was founded by the Elymians, one of the three indigenous peoples of Sicily.

Segesta’s ancient Greek temple can make a valid claim to being the best preserved in the world; its amphitheatre boasts a hilltop position on Mount Barbaro second to none.

Segesta, about seventy kilometers southwest of Palermo, reflects the presence of several ancient civilizations, beginning with the Elymians. It includes the majestic Doric temple, dating back to V century BC ,and the amphitheatre.

Unfortunately, the construction of the temple was not finished and there is no roof, but the visit is worthy and suggestive anyway; let yourself be enchanted by the scenic location of Monte Barbaro, where the temple and the amphitheatre lie.
