The term valley is a misnomer as the Valley of Temples is not in a valley but actually located on a ridge and contains the remains of seven temples.


The Temple of Juno Lacinia was constructed on a mostly artificial spur and dates from 450 BC and is six columns or 16.9 meters wide and thirteen columns or 38.15 meters deep.
