11 reviews of Selinunte

One of the most enchanting areas of the world

In Selinunte you hear about the stones. They speak with their silence of thousands of years. In Sicily and in the world the Greek ruins are famous and amazing in the Valley of the Temples in Agrigento, Selinunte. But, the province of Trapani, I was moved more, because they are in the countryside, without barriers or fences, surrounded by golden wheat fields and the ocean. From the Archaeological Park entrance you have to walk in the paths of earth. 1st you get lost in pastures, then you discover the Mediterranean full of blue and white foam that lifts the Tramontana. There are no homes or structures that pollute the horizon, there are remains of temples, columns severed by time.

Selinunte

Selinunte is an amazing archaeological park. It's like the Pompeii of Sicily (although it's in worse condition and more impaired). It's an ancient Greek city, in fact the largest Greek archaeological site in the Mediterranean. Its name seems to be derived from the Greek word Selinon, i.e. "wild parsley," which was found in abundance here by its first inhabitants. The current archaeological complex is divided into four zones: The Eastern Temples, The Acropolis, The Ancient City, and The Malophoros Sanctuary. I have to clarify that the temples' normative letters speak to its inability to accurately classify the honoring divinity.
