Segesta very quickly became the most prosperous of the Elymian cities, and a commercial centre for the goods marketed in the Egestan emporium (the modern Gulf of Castellammare).
The ancient sources tell of its age-long rivalry with Selinunte, which led first to the ill-starred Athenian expedition to Sicily in 415-413 BC and then to the request for help made in about 409 BC to the Carthaginians, who destroyed not only Selinunte but also Agrigento, Gela and Himera.
At Calatafimi Segesta there is tourist accomodation available in hotels, farm holiday, farmhouse, residence self-catering accommodation, b&b, rooms for rent, holiday homes, camp sites and tourist villages.
