A superb doric temple dated back to the fifth century BC and framed into a scenery, as wildish as evocative; a theatre of Hellenic era, clinging up Monte Barbaro, with its audotorium partially digged in the rock and overlying a cave, sacred and misterious; a more ancient temple!
Sites of extraordinary archeological interest and caves which seems to represent a “factory” of temples: this is Segesta, which holds arabic and normans evidences.
Did you know, after a legend, it was founded by Enea, to let rest aged people and “rebellious” women? And, that it was known as Diceopoli, city of justice?
At the end of the full immersion within nature and culture, after have been back into Middle Ages visiting the charming castle, please yourself with a bath in the warm and clear water of Castellamare del Golfo.
Whisper to your palate words such: ricotta cascatelle, pork ragù busiate, elimi caciotta, oranges and prickly pears….
