Before founding Selinunte, a part of people coming from Megara Hyblaea, near the current Augusta, moved near the mouth of the river Selinos.
They joined a small pre-existing Sicilian settlement, expanding it; this very first settlement is called Manuzza.
It does not excel as to the spectacularity of the remains, especially when compared to the magnificence of Selinunte, but this small settlement lived for four centuries, tells us the first peaceful cohabitations of the new colony with the locals.
Here, among the remains of the Hellenic houses, we can see the remains of some circular Sicilian huts.
An ancient road, with lateral drainage channels, runs in a south-north direction along its entire length and the presence of the remains of some stairs inside some houses testifies the birth of the first two-storey houses of the place.
Today we discover...
Church St Nicola
The most seventeenth-century façade in Sicily
Chiesa San Nicola di Trecastagni
