A succession of columms and remains of massive Greek temples, surrounded by the green countryside and the deep blue colour of the sea: this is Selinunte, situated near the mounth of the river where the wild celery (selinon) still grows and in the past gave its name to the town and the watercourse.
Founded by the Greeks in the second half of the 7th century BC, Selinunte is one of the most relevant archaeological parks in the Mediterranean area. Its outstanding collection of remains is the fullest expression of the Sicilian civilization in the 4th and 5th centuries BC.
The acropolis, on which the old fortified town was built, is of remarkable artistic interest for the necropolis, the towers and the bridges. Many finds, including painted vases, metopes and bas-reliefs, are displayed at the Museum of Archaeology in Palermo.
