    ... of the most important towns in the region , although never as powerful as Syracuse.

    We did our usual early start, drove down a few kms to the car park and then for three Euros each took a taxi back up to the entrance. This way you can start at the highest point at the Temple of Juno, which dates from 450 BC and work your way down the "valley". Amazingly in

    ... to visit two of the temples. Both the Temple of Juno and the Temple of Concord date from around 450 BC and are in various states of decay.

It was hot though and we were keen to go to a beach on ...

    ... to the passing ships. Over the years, however, weather and earthquakes have done a number on the temples, and only one still stands, mostly intact, while the others are basically rebuilt columns and piles of fallen blocks.
