Lego Paestum

-It's a model, in Lego Architecture style, of the Principal Temple of Paestum. I think the model is a really realistic riprodution of the Temple, so it will like at the Lego Fans, and it is an important construction for the History. Paestum, also known as Pesto, is an ancient city of Magna Grecia called by the founders Poseidonia in honor of Poseidon, but very devoted to Athena and Hera. After its conquest by the Lucanians it was called Paistom, and then assumed, under the Romans, the name of Paestum. The extension of its inhabited area is still well recognizable today, enclosed by its Greek walls, as modified in the Lucanian and then Roman times. It is located in the Campania region in the province of Salerno, as a fraction of the municipality of Capaccio, about 30 km south of Salerno (97 km south of Naples); it is located in the Piana del Sele, near the coast, in the Gulf of Salerno, north of the National Park of Cilento, Vallo di Diano and Alburni; the locality, near which Capaccio Scalo and Lido di Paestum are located, is served by a railway station of the same name.
