Selinunte, Greek era temples

Selinunte, Sicily

Selinunte is my favorite site for Greek temples, in large measure because of the setting. It overlooks the Med. The Acropolis in Athens and i Valli dei Tempi in Agrigento are a very close second, especially the former for its dramatic views from a distance. Watercolor sketch about 4.5 x 5.75″ , 10 x 15 cm. Fits in a pocket so good for on the spot work.

My grandparents were born nearby. In fact Selinunte was fed by an aqueduct that originated in Partanna.

I will write about our travels in Sicily, including our visit to Selinunte and Agrigento.
