Greek colonizers landed along the coasts of Cilento in the 7th century BC and founded Poseidonia (the Roman Paestum). Of major interest are: The Excavations and the Museum of Paestum surrounded by well-kept Roman walls which are 5 km long. It includes the three famous and imposing Doric temples of the VI and V century BC, and the Archeological Museum which houses the precious fresco of The Diver.
Velia is the Roman name for the ancient Greek town of Helea, founded circa 540 BC. Archeological excavations have gradually unveiled the remains of this town, the amphitheater and Porta Rosa (Pink Door). The sanctuary of Hera Argiva, located at the mouth of the Sele river, is hidden amongst vegetation. The foundation of this temple was attributed to Jason, the mythological husband of Medea and his Argonauts. A Virtual Museum examines these fascinating aspects of the past.
