Temples of Hera and Herakles


The temple of Hera dominates one end of the sacred hill and on the other side of the Temple of Concord is the Temple of Herackles.  Both were badly damaged in the siege by the Carthaginians in 406 BCE and then by a severe earthquake in the 8th century CE.  Both have been restored to some degree.
