Paestum - Italy

I didn't only get new belgium Unesco sites in Belgium, i also go this one from Italy. I bought it in a shop in Gent. I found 2 great shops in this city. This one is kinda of a philatelic shop and the other has lots of kinds of cards.

Paestum is the classical Roman name of a major Graeco-Roman city in the Campania region of Italy. The three Doric temples of Paestum are said to be the best preserved Greek temples in the world and the walls around Paestum are the most complete of that period.
The city is classified as a Unesco WHS since 1998, on the list under the name of the Cilento and Vallo di Diano National Park with the Archaeological sites of Paestum and Velia, and the Certosa di Padula.
