Created by the Greeks of Sibari around the 600 before Chirst with the name of Poseidonia, from the god of the sea Poseidon, Paestum was one of the richest and most flourishing Greek colony of the South of Italy. The fall of Sibari by the Crotonesi in 510 before Christ was the first rich moment for Poseidonia: the surving Sibariti brought in the new colony all of their riches and created the three temples still visible today. Occupied by Lucani, it lived a declining periodo after that, in 273,it become Roman colony with the name of Paestum.

Roma added Paestum in its borning empire: cultural and economical activities reflourished and new public builidings like the amphiteater, the foro and the gimnasium were built. Still today they are visitable as part of the archeological park. Around the VII century after Christ, the production of new streets for the commerce with the East, Malaria epidemics and the raids of Saraceni pirates marked the beginning of its decline. Since 1991 the Archological Park of Paestum, in the town of Capaccio, is Unesco World Heritage.
