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.

This ruined temple belonged to the Elymian people. It is well preserved. Slight uphill walk to get there and then you can walk around the circumference. We took a bus to the ruined ancient city of Segesta and there some lovely views of the temple on the way down Worthwhile ruined amphitheatre with great views down the valley

There's free parking, but you need to pay 6€ for the entrance ticket which covers both temple and theater. Best time to visit is about 15-18, there will be less tourists. Temple is in great shape but it has never been finished. It's impressive. One of the places you must see when visiting Sicily.

I would recommend this visit by end afternoon before it closes at 6 pm, after visiting the Segesta city center perhaps, as well as neighboring cities such as harbor gem Castellammare del golfo or quaint village Scopello. The late timing enables to discover this temple in all its splendor with beautiful sunset light -- ideal for pictures. This is just... More

Alone but making a statement. The colums ensemble get you the feeling of what the whole temple might have been. Worse the five minutes walk.

This is a very good place to take the kids it. Is very interesting the temple is very well preserved. The walk to it is very short. The amphitheater is very good but the walk is very long and up hill but u can take a bus.

The most extraordinary example of a 400-500 BC Temple in the whole Meditteranean says my Classic studying daughter. Well worth a visit.

This 5th century BC temple is stunning and sits majestically all by itself. Built by the Elymians, the temple measures 26 metres x 61 metres, has 6 columns front and back, with 14 running down the sides. It appears as though it was never completed and has never had a roof, the verdict is still out on whether this was... More

They run a bus service up to the amphitheater which is a bonus on a scorching hot day. The amphitheater is really nice with sweeping views over the valley below and you can let your imagination run wild with the performances that would have been shown here all those years ago. There are some other ruins near the amphitheater but... More

Both the temple and the theatre were worth the visit uphill. It was hot, yet the beautiful Sicilian country surroundings made up for it.
