Campania is a wonderful land that can offer a lot to its visitors both for the scenic beauty it has, and for the many monuments of great interest from an architectural, historical and artistic point of view.
A destination that should certainly be included in excursions in the province of Salerno, are the temples of Paestum. A wonderful area where you can admire structures dating back to the era of Magna Graecia, in which a little all of southern Italy was influenced from an artistic and cultural point of view by ancient Greece.
The most fascinating temple in Paestum is certainly that of Hera, which is also the oldest. A stone built basilica whose princely works date back to the year 560 BC. It is called a basilica, due to the fact that, despite the many studies carried out, it has not yet been possible to unequivocally understand its function, even if it is thought that it is certainly a cult building. Among other things, thanks to some recent works, it was possible to break down real architectural barriers that did not allow you to visit this temple in its internal part.
