Segesta -Calatafimi

Segesta---20 minutes from the organic farm, Bosco Falconeria, where I have been staying (in Partinico).

There is  a 5th century BC Doric temple, (according to Wikipedia is "widely regarded as one of the most intact of its type." Adjoining the temple, on a nearby hilltop quite a bit above, is a 2nd century Roman amphitheater.

The Amphitheater
There are also ruins of a castle--view from those ruins....
