Landscape view of the temple of Paestum, from the summit of the walls near the Porta del Mare. In the foreground are a number of archaeological stone blocks, a ruin on the right hand side and possibly a roadway in the mid ground from left to right. Beyond this, the largely complete temple of Paestum shows as a forest of columns with remnants of the superstructure.
