"The Necropolis" Selinunte Things to Do Tip by MikeAtSea

Selinunte Things to Do: 24 reviews and 55 photos

by MikeAtSea

The Greeks had a very eloquent name for the areas used for burying and venerating the dead, calling them necropolises, in other words city of the dead. In Selinunte the necropolises have only been partial excavated because they are often situated on private property. However some of the tombs are on display.
