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.

Beautiful temple in a wonderful setting. A definite must-see. Not at all crowded. We visited on a very hot day and be aware that there's not a lot of shade - hat and ideally an umbrella are a good idea. An easy drive from San Vito, Palermo and most other places in NW Sicily.

The drive from Palermo was beautiful and went fast alongside the Italian drivers. It was a breath of fresh air to see the countryside with all of the agriculture. Google maps knew exactly where the ruins were, so we had a very direct route. We were happy to find that parking was free, and the signs were both in Italian... More

The site entrance covers the Temple and the Theatre. You must see both! Unfortunately the Theatre is quite a distance from the entrance and is uphill - too far to walk (for me at least) in the heat of the summer. Don't worry, they run a shuttle bus from the entrance up to the Theatre - it is an extra... More

This temple was a nice warm up before we moved on to Agrigento. This place is more serene than the valley but still impressive. Combined with the theatre up the hill which is fantastic, this is a nice stop off on your tour.

This is the perfect place to get a sense of what the life and landscapes looked like ages ago. I wished there could have been a bit more organisation, with visited guide.

While in Sicily, we visited all the major Greek sites, This was our favorite, however, because of the beautiful walk up the hill to the amphitheater, which offered great views of the temple and surrounding hills. The temple itself may be unfinished, but it's one of the most complete and best preserved in Sicily.

A fantastic temple in the central Sicily. Very well preserved, so a visitor can really get the whole picture of it. Definitely not to be missed in Sicily.

High up in a mountainous area towards the west of Sicily is the beautiful and frankly magical Segesta archaeological complex. Segesta was originally founded by the Elymian people, one of the native people of Sicily. They later integrated with the Greeks, making Segesta an important Classical town. It was later ruled by the Romans, but declined in importance before being... More

There are so many temples and Greek/Roman theatres in Sicily that you need to be selective. Segesta has good examples of each - manageable, not spread out over a large area, bus link up a hill to the theatre. I thought the best examples of each type of building and not I ruins either
