Seliunute was beautiful! We had a wonderful guide, Giacomo, who not only shared his knowledge of this wonderful area but all of Sicily with us. I think in our 9 hours together we learned more about Sicily than in the months before as we studied the history and the people. He was funny, witty, entertaining, and informative.

Seliunte was settled by the Greeks, destroyed by Carthage, and left in ruins. It was used in the 1940's during the threat of invasion and is now a wonderful monument to the ages.

Okay, some very illegal homes are built far too close to this magnificent archeological park, some even IN the park, but the history of the place is fascinating.
