Temple of Concord, one of the best preserved temples of the greek world

The Temple of Concordia takes its name from an ancient Roman inscription found nearby the majestic structure, which although has no relation to a temple, speaks of the consecration of a Sanctuary to Concordia, a Roman mythological figure evocative of community harmony.
The temple’s spectacular state of preservation, its Doric columns intact over the centuries, can be attributed to the fact that at the end of the 6th century AD, the bishop Gregory decided to ordain the Temple of Concordia for Christian worship.
In fact, in 597 AD the temple was transformed into a church dedicated to the saints Peter and Paul.
The temple, then a place of Christian worship, ceased to perform its religious functions in 1748, when it was decided to return it to its original form.
