It was one of the main centers of Magna Grecia, now partially brought to light thanks to the archaeological excavations whose spearhead is without a doubt the sensational complex of the three temples dedicated to the gods Athena, Neptune and Era, the latter being the oldest of the three and belonging to the first generation of large stone temples. At the time the giants of Paestum were considered the “oldest architectures outside Egypt”. A few steps from the ancient city there is the Archaeological Museum of Paestum, which houses precious evidence of Greek culture and the subsequent Latin colony, among the most important pieces stand out the sculptures of the Treasury of the sanctuary of Era and the painted slabs of the Tomb of the Diver.
