The temple of Junon (Tempio di Hera Lacinia)

Recommended
The temple of Juno was build around 470 BC and set ablaze by the Carthaginians in 406. You can see the marks left by the smoke on the walls of the cella, the room in which the statue of the Goddess once stood. Although the temple is not in a perfect state of repair, the colonnade in the pronaos, like those in the opisthodome and the cella are well kept. In case you were wondering... the opisthodomos is the section at the rear of the temple opposite the pronaos.
