Off the beaten path
On May 15th 1860 a great battle between Garibaldi and his mille (Resistance Army) and the Bourbons took place. The battle, which eventually was won by Garibaldi, was decisive for the organization of Sicily and the unification of Italy. On the hill where the battle took place, a few kilometers away from Segesta and Calatafimi, you can see an obelisk commemorating the soldiers who gave their lives to the unification of Italy. This memorial is located near the road to Trapani and is shown on the downloadable Google Earth route.
