This temple was used by the high priests and those of nobility. You can see the mixture of Roman and Greek architecture.

Sadly now largely ruined, but as well as some huge pillars, there are impressive (replica) statues of Apollo and Diana, standing where the originals, now in Naples Archaeology Museum, stood. There is also a lovely stone sundial.

The amount of the temple that remains is amazing. I haven’t seen anything like this. Most of the temple appears to be made of marble and the columns are huge. The process of building it must have taken a ton of time. It’s amazing to...More

This is the site of a very important religious building. When one is really interested in ancient archaeology and in knowing about ancient civilizations, etc, Italy is the place to go. Pompeii is a "must see" destination. Pompeii. is a famous archaeological city in Campania...More

you have to think outside the box of how things were in their day, Apollo is such a big part of mythology, understand that and you understand all the temples.
