Segesta rises at a few kilometers from Alcamo and Castellammare del Golfo, in the Municipality of Calatafimi - Segesta, on the top of Mount Barbaro. Inaccessible from three sides, it was perfect for ancient populations, forced to defend themselves against their enemies. It is famous for what remains of its ancient splendor: the doric Temple, the Theatre and the Shrine of Contrada Mango. Every summer, in the beautiful scenery of the ancient Theater of Segesta, the great classics’ works of the theater revive. The city stood on two hills, on the top of Mount Barbaro. The city walls enclose two acropolis (North and South). Along the North Acropolis stands the theater. Outside the walls, you find the Temple, the Sanctuary of Contrada Mango and the remains of a Hellenistic necropolis. Beside the Acropolis stands the theater.
