The ancient archeological site of Segesta was once a major city of Sicily’s original Elymian people, who adopted much of their culture from the Greeks. Among the ruins at Segesta is a wonderfully intact Greek-style temple and an outdoor amphitheater. The marks of Sicily’s long history can be found here in the foundations of later structures, including a Norman fortress, a church and a mosque.
