Destination: Segesta

Segesta was once an important town for the Elymnians, immigrants from Italy around the 12th century B.C.E. What is left of the strongly hellenized town is a grand temple of Doric style – whose dedication is unknown – and a superb open-air theatre. These are two important reminders of the strong Greek presence and influence in that part of Sicily. They are set in a stunning hilly landscape, and are dramatically beautiful in the Spring when wild flowers abound.
