Fifth-century B.C. Tempio di Nettuno (Temple of Neptune) is among the world’s greatest preserved Doric temples. It’s the grandest and best-preserved of the three temples at Paestum (near Pompeii), originally a colony called Poseidonia, founded by the Greeks in the 6th century B.C.and consumed by the Romans in 273 B.C. Malaria and a devastating Saracen raid in 877 A.D. led to almost total abandonment. The remains of the colony lay hidden under growth for hundreds of years until discovery in the 18th century during road building.
