Fodor's Review

The Sanctuary of Hera Lacinia was once one of the most important shrines of Magna Graecia. Only one column still remains standing, but the site (known as Capo Colonna because of that single pillar) occupies a stunning position on a promontory 11 km (7 miles) south of the town of Crotone. The ruins are part of a vast park, which also contains a well-appointed museum documenting finds from prehistory to the Roman era. The sanctuary, which dates from the 7th century BC, is fenced off for safety reasons, but a walkway alongside the remains allows viewing.
