Templo Romano de Evora (Templo de Diana), Evora

(2,200+ reviews on the web)
Religious Site
See the remains of the ancient Roman Templo Romano de Evora (Templo de Diana), with a preserved base and columns carved out of granite and marble, positioned at the center of a public square. This two-millennia-old religious structure stands 9.7 m (32 ft) tall and 25 m (82 ft) wide, and was originally surrounded by a reflecting pool. Built mainly for religious purposes, the site was historically used also as an execution point and a slaughterhouse. View its 14 original granite Corinthian columns with decorative marble capitals, sturdy enough to have withstood the destructive earthquake of 1755.

  • It's a small and dirty ruin, with nothing really to value it. No explanation, no renovation. Nice to pass by but not worth a detour.  more »
  • Very well maintained this ruin. Worth the visit! Around there are other picturesque places, restaurants, wineries, gardens.

  • Seeing this temple is nice, but they have it roped off so you can't climb it or interact much with it. Basically you can just look at it and take pictures. Given its age and historical importance it i...  more »

  • A great stop and a short ride from Lisboa. I wan't aware of this first-century historic landmark prior to my visit. The Roman Temple of Évora (Templo romano de Évora), also referred to as the Templo de Diana (albeit wrongly).
  • Amazing, especially at night. If you go there you should also walk through the park that is close by to see a panoramic view of the city.
  • How can you visit Evora and not stop by the Roman Temple?! Evora's history at the crossroads of main thoroughfares from ancient times is fascinating. This place offers a small glimpse into that story.
  • More from a historic point of view this is well preserved but not really very special compare to others in Europe.
  • It is amazing to visit this Roman Temple in the center of city. It has interesting history for surviving such as long time.
