3/14/18: Today we visited another ancient site, Selinunte, the rival city of Segesta. It seems these people had enormous wealth, as there are at least three extramural temples and several inside the city acropolis as well. The city itself is sprawling and has an extensive wall and military fort for protection. One of my favorite landmarks at this site is Temple G (or whatever remains of it). One of the largest temples in the ancient world, it is now a pile of rubble thanks to time and natural disasters. Several of the columns still partially stand, and their enormous size helps give a visual of how massive this temple would have been. We were given some time to scramble around on the rocks, too, which was a very cool experience. It’s rare to find an ancient site that is so interactive.
