Eraclea Minoa. Sicily. Italy. View of the white limestone cliff beside the archaeological park. Herakleia Minoa was founded in the 6th BC by settlers from the earlier Greek settlement of Selinunte, 60 kilometres away. By the end of the 1st century BC it was totally abandoned. The ancient site is magnificently positioned high on a lonely ridge above a sweeping bay backed by pine forests and sandy white beach and the central south coast of Sicily.
