I was always fascinated by mythology. Being a Greek, I had an extra reason to. Maybe that is why i get the thrills everytime I visit an ancient Greek site. But this time, I was really, really amazed. This extremely well maintained ancient city in the southern of Naples is a small diamond.





Being built near the sea, the ancient Greek city of Paestum (once called Poseidonia/Ποσειδωνία) covered quite a big area and has to big three very well maintain temples: Two dedicated to the Goddess Hera, and one dedicated to goddess Athena. 





The city dates back to the 600BC, and luckily enough was abandoned and untouched during the middle ages, letting these masterpieces stand and amaze visitors nowadays.
