The Temple of Hera also called Basilica, is the oldest of the three buildings, and was started around 560 BCE. It is the only one of that time to preserve himself so well over the time. The name basilica is because when they built the archaic structure there were still no specific architecture canons, leaving a controversy over its original function over the time, even though nowadays they proven that it was sure a cult building. Findings and inscriptions suggest that it could be the temple of Hera, which is the protector of the Achaeans and bride of Zeus. The Temple of Athena is certain the only temple we know for sure to which divinity was dedicated: Athena, the goddess of artisanship and war. Built on the highest point of the city, around 500 BCE. with the purpose to predominate over the surrounding area.
