Selinunte (ancient Selinon) is one of the most evocative places in Sicily. Also one of the most impressive of all Greek sites. Never having been built over in modern times. In the 5th Century BC it was second only to Syracuse. Nearby is Marinella, a small fishing village blessed by the gaze of the ancient gods. Calm and quiet for most of the year, it’s a very relaxing place for a seaside holiday, thanks to its wonderful sandy beaches. Here it is possible to experience something unique, bathing in the Mediterranean Sea while the sun sets behind the ancient temple ruins.
