Archaeological area of Segesta
Segesta, proudly guards the remains of the Elymian city, of an extraordinary Doric temple, a Hellenistic amphitheatre and some strong fortifications which make it today one of the most important archaeological sites of Sicily. On the summit of the mountain, the magnificent amphitheatre (mid II century B.C.), the remains of a classic age building and a Hellenistic bouleterion show the life of the city while a portico, a paved courtyard and a colonnade indicate what was once the agorÓ in Hellenistic and Roman times. Near the amphitheatre there are the remains of a Muslim village with mosques and Norman and Swabian settlements with a castle.
