SEGESTA, according to the traditional legend, had a Trojan origin. It is located on the isolated hill called Barbaro and washed by the river Crimiso, nearby Calatafimi. The well-preserved temple and the Greek theater were built in the late 5th century BC. ERICE, just about 2400 feet above sea level, is cool even in a hot Sicilian summer. According to Thucydides, it was a city like no other; a sacred place dedicated to the goddess of love and fecundity, Aphrodite for the Greeks and Venus for the Romans.
