In this talk I will review some models of modified gravities and their features from a classical point of view. Over the last years, modified gravities have drawn much attention within the cosmological context in order to explain the late-time acceleration of the universe expansion and even to explain the inflationary epoch. I will show the pros and cons of some of the main proposals.
