The acropolis was established on the top of an ancient hill, built up of different layers of habitation. Its temples were dedicated to Jupiter, Bacchus, and Venus.
    Six of the fifty-four giant columns that originally surrounded the sanctuary in the Jupiter Temple have survived till today.
    The temple has an impressive podium and rectangular courtyard, where sacrifices were carried out, with a huge entrance and hexagonal forecourt.
