Basilica : Michelin's recommendations
Th oldest temple in the town (dated to the 6C BC) was devoted it seems to Hera, sister and wife of Zeus, known later by the Romans as Juno. You will notice its archaic character: swollen centre of columns and pronounced compression of the spine of the capitals, an illustration of the design according to which buildings, like men, should swell up under strain of effort and shrink back under that of weight.
