"Selinunte" Selinunte by Polly74

Selinunte Travel Guide: 27 reviews and 76 photos

Selinunte is located in the southwest coast of Sicily in the province of Trapani, close to the border with Agrigento province. While Agrigento boasts more standing Greek temples in its renowned "Valley of the Temples," Selinunte is set in a much more tranquil and scenic setting, with an ambience that permits a good impression of what an ancient Greek city and life in it were really like.

The city of Selinunte proper, known as the "Acropolis," is situated on high land overlooking the Mediterranean Sea about twenty meters below. The Acropolis is located roughly in the center of the park's area.

The park surrounding Selinunte and its monuments extends about 1,300 meters east to west. Selinunte is open from 9:00 AM to an hour before sundown most days with the exception of major holidays. If you need more specific information, call the tourist office at 0924-46251.
