First Temple of Hera, Paestum

Just south of Naples, Paestum is a great example of a Greek city that became Roman, but staunchly held onto its Greek architecture.

The so-called Basilica, receiving its name because the first explorers to the site didn’t think it was a temple, is another great example of early Doric architecture.
