The ancient town of Metaponto is situated on the Ionian coast of southern Italy. It was originally a Greek settlement although evidence has been found locally of occupation back to Neolithic times.

Today the outstanding remains at the site are those of the Temple of Hera, dating back to the 6th century BCE, part of a “countryside sanctuary”.
