Italy trip: Selinunte

32 photo with description
Day of the fifth trip in Sicily. Selinunte — the Greek city left by inhabitants still in the ancient time. The weather was gloomy and photo is't well.

Selinunte, in respect of sights, concedes Agrigento, but it less «licked» and is less trampled.

Temple of Hera, Selinunte

Ancient Greek Selinunte very favourably was — from it no distance to the north of Africa and Malta, to it it was a tidbit for Carthago. The city repeatedly passed from hand to hand, three times was completely destroyed and finally has been left by inhabitants, after capture Saracens.

In Selinunte ruins of temples are called by letters because their names are for certain unknown. It, not bad enough remained «Temple E», so-called the «Temple of Hera».

Temple C, Selinunte
In the distance ruins of «Temple C» and a view to Mediterranean sea are seen. From it there was only a colonnade.

Rests of a fortress, Selinunte
Selinunte possessed powerful fortification. At building of strengthenings, certainly, archaic constructions actively understood. On a background unique from the remained colonnades of «Temple C».

On territories of a fortress and all districts of the Acropolis stones are chaotically scattered. Many with the drawn figures or the beaten metal tablets — restorers on particles try to restore separate elements.

The nature and vegetation in this district suspiciously reminds our midland unless agaves are beaten out. Besides, hasten to see what in Sicily the end of March.

The most amusing that on the city territory it is possible to get and it is free, because the district is not limited by any fence, and cash desks only on the one hand. Prevents to reach nothing any of nearby settlements and to walk on foot to ruins.

Scheme of Selinunte and the scheme of routes excursion electric cars
For an additional payment it is offered to pass on territory on an electropenalty (€3 on a small dog circle, €6 — on big), but I would advise to take a walk on foot. Distances there small, at most you will reel up 3 km — but easy at all look. And electropenalties will make 2–3 stops for small time and all — you will see only a small part.

From the archeological excavations conducted from second half of a XIX-th century, the found mosaics/bas-reliefs/high reliefs and separate elements of facades of structures are taken away on local museums so in Acropolis Selinunte territory now there were only massive blocks.
