Today the city of Selinunte doesn’t exist. But its greatness has survived. Between the VII and the V centuries it was one of the most flourishing and important Greek colonies, today is one of the most significative archaeological sites in Europe. Getting Selinunte, the vastness of the area on which it stands, the massive structure of columns, the richness of the decorations, the great number of ruins scattered on the ground and the solemnity of those ones still standing, will surprise you. Selinunte stood on a hillside not far from the sea that now falls in the town of Castelvetrano.
