Cape Colonna

It once boasted 48 columns, now it has only one! It is therefore difficult to imagine the former splendour of the temple of Hera, one of Greater Greece's most famous temples which fell prey to pirates, Aragonese invasion and, to cap it all, an earthquake in 1783! It is here that Pier Paolo Pasolini filmed some scenes of The Gospel According to St. Matthew.
