Remnants of a Roman villa
Halaesa, an ancient Greek colony founded in the fifth century BC and was abandoned during Arab domination of Sicily. It is near the town of Tusa and came to prosperity under Roman imperial rule. The central square (Agora), a roman villa and part of the wall surrounding it have been dug up. A roman road leading into the city is under excavation.
