The temple of Segesta, Sicily
The temple of Segesta, one of the most perfect left to us from Antiquity, stands in majestic solitude on a hill surrounded by a deep valley surrounded by Bernardo and Monte Monte Barbaro, on which there is the theater. Built in 430 BC, is an elegant Doric proportions of rare harmony. The peristyle was almost completely intact the 36 columns, magnificent limestone of a golden tint and no grooves. This fact and the lack of an internal cell did suggest that the building has been abandoned before the end. In this theory, however, opposes the opinion of some scholars for whom the absence of any trace of the internal cell (usually the point at which construction was begun), shows that the building is actually a peristyle pseudotemplare. Add to this the mystery of his destination, since there was no evidence found that would indicate to which divinity was dedicated.
