The Oratory of Falaride is a small temple built by the Romans after the cancellation of the Ekklesiasterion.

The temple is prostyle tetrastyle, but the four Ionic columns on the front have been lost. It stands on a tall base with a flight of stairs on the front. The cella measures 6×5.3m, the pronaos is 2.5m deep, and the base is 1.6m high.

With the construction of the nearby church of San Nicola the temple was transformed into an oratory. The windows on the sides and on the back were made for this transformation.
