All reviews hidden treasure ancient greek architecture magna graecia large site the main road beautiful greek century bc archaeological site athena pediment ceres columns euro cars nature tickets ruins
At the entrance on the right side stands the beautiful and smallest of three temples. Traditionally attributed to Cereres, it is now thought to be dedicated to Athena instead. Though the smallest it is still amazing, with frieze and columns in the Doric style
You can see it from the car as soon as you turn toward the archaeological area. Unexpectedly big. Rather well preserved. Solid an pretty.
Having seen all the Temple of Magna Grecia, this is really pretty.
