Temple of Concordia and the Temple of Juno, Valley of the Temples

Temple of Concordia, 430 BCE

This Doric temple (peripteral hexastyle) is one of the best preserved outside of Greece. All the temples in this so-called valley (actually more of a ridge) are constructed of rich red sandstone. Originally the easily eroded sandstone had been covered with a white stucco made of marble dust
