Sicily is the cradle of the European culture and Segesta is one of the historical treasure of this region. It used to be the centre of one of the three indigenous people of Sicily: the Elymians. With a scenic location high up on Mount Barbaro, (about 400 meters high) only 30 minutes by car from Trapani, Segesta is the ideal destination for a daytrip. It attracts both lovers of history and nature, since the path to the monuments is surrounded by the local Mediterranean scrubland. It is also here you will find the magnificent Doric temple and the Greek theater called The Segesta Theater.
