MN continues Sicilia Part 2, “The ancient Roman name for Sicily was Trinacria, because of its triangular shape. Sicily has undergone a range of dominations, from Greeks, Romans, Germanic and Byzantines, Arabs, Normans, French, Spanish and the Bourbons till the unification of Italy in 1861. Therefore the historical remains of these different cultures, like ancient temples, theaters, ancient statues and Barocan churches can be found in archeological sites, museums and cities around the island.” Thank you MN for your contribution to Sicilia Part 2!

Here I am back on the bus on the way to another archaeological site in Sicilia!
Greek archaeological site of Selinunte
We finally get to eat overlooking the beautiful beach above with the ruins of Selinunte in view!
“On the south west coast of Sicily, not far from Mazara del Vallo, lies one of the largest and most impressive archaeological sites in the Mediterranean. On a par with pretty much anything found in Greece itself, Selinunte has lain abandoned for over 2,000 years, its numerous temples, acropolis and agora in dignified ruins… Selinunte is beautifully located, sitting on a high plain and overlooking the sea. It is flanked on either side by golden beaches.” Read more:
