Segesta (Ancient Greek: Ἕγεστα Egesta; Sicilian: Siggésta) was one of the major cities of the Elymian people, one of the three indigenous peoples of Sicily. The other major cities of the Elymians were Eryx and Entella. It is located in the northwestern part of Sicily in Italy, near the modern comune of Calatafimi-Segesta in the province of Trapani.
Segesta contains the famous fifth century BC incomplete, but very well-preserved, Temple of Segesta.
