trasporto Si tratta delle cave di pietra caratterizzate da banchi di calcarenite estesi lungo circa 2 km in prossimità della costa, da cui veniva estratto il materiale per la costruzioni di Selinunte.... more »These quarries transport characterized by extended 2 km-long limestone benches near the coast, from which was extracted the material for the construction of Selinunte. They were in use from the 6th century BC until the defeat of the Greeks by the Carthaginians in 409 BC. The most significant element that you will notice is the abrupt cessation of mining, processing and transportation of column drums, due to the threat that hung over the city in 409 BC for the sudden onset of the Carthaginian army. The sudden escape of quarrymen, stonemasons and workers involved, meant that today we can not only recognize but also follow all the various processing phases: from the first circular, deep ravines up to Rahman ended up waiting only being transported, recommended.

The elements of shaping short columns are immense. It's hard to understand how, with the means at the time, could thus dig the rock to shape almost perfect "wheels" of this size. How they then took them to the site of the temples?
I was this summer. A wonderful place of hers that tells the story ... should be advertised, promoted, with all the tourism that EC is instead ... completely abandoned to itself a disgrace
Exciting place but with very few signs and uncared for. To visit after the temples, if you are in the area well worth a visit.
Visit Greek careers, a time moving. On this site, one can easily imagine the hard work of workers to extract pieces of columns and then transport them to Selinunte, 13 km
Place to visit before going to the Archaeological Park of Selinunte. Although, as usual, we fail to appreciate the treasures that we have because of the State of seed dispersal that is located on the site. Not to mention that there is a guide. But there are several "keepers" who seems to prefer the cool air conditioning. Thanks Sicily!
A site of substantial importance undervalued! You can see how they were made the rocchi, the capitals of the temples. A unique experience! Shame it's not advertised.
