The Temple of Segesta is one of the most perfectly preserved examples of ancient monuments.It rises alone on a crest surrounded by a deep valley overlooked by Mount Bernardo and Mount Barbaro, on which the Theatre is situated. Built in 430 BC it is an elegant Doric structure with harmonious proportions of rare quality.

Theatre – Built in the C3rd BC in the Hellenistic period but under Roman domination, the theatre comprises a perfect, vast semicircle 63 metres in diameter situated on a rocky slope: the steps face towards the hills behind which, to the right, the gulf of Castellammare can be discerned. Every year, in summer, the theatre comes to life and fills with spectators ready to enjoy, in a timeless moment, the tragedies and plays which fascinated ancient peoples.
