Paestum

Paestum is a ruined site recognised by UNESCO as a World Natural Heritage site in the Campania region in the province of Salerno in Italy. The town was founded by Greeks from Sybaris in 600 BC. They were probably attracted by the prospect of cultivating the fertile soil. Within a few generations the fertile countryside and substantial trading interests resulted in a period of prosperity. The construction of a large temple complex, the ruins of which have been preserved to this day, testify to this erstwhile prosperity. Paestum produced important historic monuments dating from Greek and Roman times, of which the three great Doric temples are of particular significance. Nowadays there is a museum in Paestum, with exhibitions of the finds from the surrounding area.
