Along the highway 113 you pass near the Himera hill right next to the grandiose remains of the Temple of Victory.

It was built following the victory of the Greeks against the Carthaginians in the great battle of 480 BC.

The battlefield was just the area where you are.

The temple is in Doric style.

It was built with shell tuff and is 55.91 meters long and 22.45 meters wide.

At one time it was entirely colorful, and was adorned with a series of gutters in the shape of a lion's head.

A good number of those is now exhibited in various museums, as well as in the adjacent Pirro Marconi museum, where theer are also several findings relating to the battles mentioned above.

Around 409 BC, during the second battle of Himera, the temple suffered a fire and destruction.
