Heraclea Minoa

Above the white beaches of this part of Sicily are the ruins of Heraclea Minoa, Greek city of the 6th century BC, that gets its name from the two personages: Hercules and Minos.

Packing great emotional impact is the Greek theater, whose audience would look out to the African Sea leaving the visitor today only to imagine what those viewers were seeing and thinking.

At Eraclea, there are also ruins of an ancient city and a surprisingly good Antiquarium.
