Sicily 8: Segesta, Province of Trapani

Segesta is in the northwest section of the island of Sicily. A common story of its origins is that it was founded by Trojans who settled there after their lost war with the Greeks.  Segesta is the site of a famous Doric Temple, but we’ll get to that in my next post (Sicily 9).  Meanwhile here are some photos of our tour on the way to Segesta’s archeological sites, including our visit to a winery and at the100_0379lunch provided by our tour guides.100_0307100_0315100_0366100_0367
