Cittá di Marsala – Sicilia

This city on Sicily’s western coast was founded as a Carthaginian colony in 397 BC following the destruction of the nearby settlement on the island of Mozia by the Syracusans. … Its position was ideally suited for a naval base, and the Carthaginians used it as the site for their landings in many of their attempts to conquer the island. Lilybeo was the only major city of Sicily that was not completely Hellenized. …1DSC_0127 copy2DSC_0119 copy3DSC_0121 copy4DSC_0124 copy5CSC_0443 copy6DSC_0129 copy7CSC_0447 copy8CSC_0446 copy9DSC_0130 copy10DSC_0120 copy
