  • The area around the Roman temple is definitely worth visiting. There is a good view right next to the temple. The temple itself is not much, there is only a small part still standing and there is almost no information given about it.
  • Temple in honour to the Diana godess which is well preserved. The temple is beautiful any time of the day although I prefer by sunset with a beautiful sky in the background. The temple is in the middle of a big square so it is free, accessible and worth to visit. Recommended 😊
