Calatafimi Segesta

An Elymian centre with Hellenistic overtones, Segesta’s origins date back to Acestes, son of the Trojan nymph Egesta who welcomed Aenea during his wanderings. The majestic Doric temple of the V century B.C, which is still complete, is of great interest. On the summit of the mountain is the Greek amphitheatre which, in summer is animated with important events, and from which one can enjoy a suggestive view over the surrounding valleys. In the archaeological park, there is also the large Sanctuary of Mango district from the VI-V century B.C., a castle, a medieval church and the ruins of an ancient Mosque. Near Segesta is the medieval town of Calatafimi, with the Eufemeo Castle and the rich churches, which is characterised by alleyways and roads of clear Islamic origins. It is on the high ground of Punta di Romano facing it that the harsh battle of Garbidaldi’s Thousand was fought.
