The ancient Greek town rised up on a calcareous plateau overhanging the sea, between two rivers. Once rich and densely populated, it was destroyed by the Carthaginians and then by a violent earthquake in the Byzantine period (VI-IX century). A walk in the vast aera of the archaeological park (the largest in Europe), through the ruins of the temples and the sea breeze rich in salt, is an experience full of evocative feelings.
