Lying on a beautiful bay still full of ancient wrecks, Gela is one of the oldest Sicilian towns.

The first settlements date back to the 5th century BC.

It's considered one of the most important historical, archaeological and cultural sites in the Mediterranean.

It was one of the most influential towns all over the whole greek world.

In medieval times the majestic ruins of the polis were exploited to built the town, causing the loss of numerous temples and long sections of the mighty fortifications.

The current town is bounded by walls of the Frederick time.

The remains of the Hellenistic Baths complex of Gela are the oldest spa system discovered so far in Italy.

In the archaeological area of ​​Capo Soprano you can admire the fortifications: the best preserved example of Greek military architecture all over the world.

Very interesting are the excavations of the archaic Acropolis.

Inside the Bosco Littorio, a Greek Emporio has been brought to light and recently restored.

Among the latest discoveries the completion of the recovery of the oldest Greek wreck stands out.

It is hosted in the Regional Archaeological Museum.

The museum concerns Greek art, prehistoric art, Norman pottery ("Gela type") and numismatics.

There are numerous churches to visit, in addition to the theater Eschilo and the monumental cemetery.
