Owner description: This unfinished fifth-century Doric temple has everything but a roof and an interior, and the huge structure seems unaffected by time. A small theater atop a nearby hill offers visitors a stunning view of green hills and the deep blue hues of the sea below.

“Not to miss.”
Reviewed 18 September 2012

Having done some research beforehand, this was ranking high on my list of places to visit. Undoubtedly, it was well worth it. The Temple is easily reached by foot whilst there is a coach service (every 30min from either point) to take you up to the Theatre. There are also other remains from different periods, to include a Church and a Mosque. This site offers an incredible colourful 360 degrees view of the Sicilian countryside all the way to the sea. Besides the Temple in Segesta, there are others, such as the ones in Selinunte (make sure to include Le Cave the Cusa which most regrettably we had to miss) and La Valle Dei Templi, none of which would be a waste of time. Thus I would recommend not to miss any of them, as they all offer a different experience. Once in Segesta I would definitely recommend a meal at Baglio Segesta which is located just behind the Temple, but must be reached by car. The road is a little bit rough so it will take some 15min to get there. Upon our arrival, as we were getting into the car park there was a nice guy suggesting and giving advice as how to reach this place.

“Well organised spectacle”
Reviewed 28 August 2012

Good parking and the coach up the hill to the amphitheatre is well worth the expense. Good café at the base.
