One of the best preserved Doric temples in the world along with the Temple of Hera or Pseidon in paestum and the Theseion on the agora in Athens. The building was named by the historian Fazello after a Latin inscription found nearby. In 597, it was converted into a Christian basilica by the bishop Gregorio and maintained as a church until the 18th century.
