An excursion from Segesta to the Valley of the Temples through the Cave of Cusa and Selinunte, will give you a sense of what it means.
The first thing we notice is the temple. On the plateau, between the two peaks of the mountain, in the V-IV century BC, stood the ancient city; of this city today we can still visit the Temple, the Theater and the Sanctuary of the Mango.
