Paestum Things to Do: 47 reviews and 85 photos
This temple is the first known temple in the world to mix the Doric order of the main peristyle with the ionic order used in the porch. It would be another fifty years before that combination would be tried again, this time in mainland Greece.
A votive doric column (as seen in intro page pic) stands just to the side of the limestone altar in front of the temple.
