10 Lesser Known Ancient Ruins in Europe

  

2. The Temple of Segesta, Sicily

On the northwest of the island of Sicily, around 75 km from Palermo, along the highway that connects the city to Trapani, is a spectacular ancient ruin – the Temple of Segesta. The temple, that looks something like the Parthenon from a distance, is magnificent and very well-preserved. It has no roof, but not because it collapsed over time, but because it was never completed when it was built in 430 BC. Nearby are the ruins of a spectacular amphitheater. To this day, it is used for concerts and plays.
