Just as many other enchanted places on this island, Segesta was a settlement for Arabs and then Normans, who built a castle enlarged and embellished by the Suevians. That became the very center of a picturesque medieval village, attracting, among others, the renowned writer Johann Wolfgang Goethe who mentioned the village in his Italian journey. But the village is mostly known for its archaeological site. It hosts multiple archaeological areas, like the temple and the theatre. Here, one will admire the temple remains, the entire preserved passage, and enjoy a visit to the open-air theatre, with an amazing view on the seaside and hills.
