Archival evidence will allow to better document restorations, anastylosis during the end of the 18th century, and conservation activities during the 20th century. This first part will scrutinize
the most important reports and contributions by travelers, artists, scholars of ancient architecture during the Grand Tour. A second section will focus on architecture and architectural peculiarities, sacred landscape, spatial relationship among the sacred buildings on the Southern Hill, and cultual activities in the sanctuaries.
