Manuzza Hill in Selinunte
The Manuzza hill of the Selinunte Archaeological Park rises north of the acropolis. The area was occupied by an inhabited area that had a Hippodamian layout with elongated blocks strictly oriented north-south, and which was originally surrounded by a defensive wall. It is believed that the agora was also located in this area. The excavations have revealed that the place was inhabited since the foundation of Selinunte but that it was definitively abandoned after its destruction.
On the Manuzza hill in 1985 a tuff construction was found, probably a public building dating back to the 5th century BC.
