Templo Romano de Evora (Templo de Diana), Evora

(4.2/5 based on 2,200+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Go to Evora and not see the Temple of Diana is unforgivable. The temple itself does not require much time, but the surrounding area is quite nice and has some places that can be visited: Museum of the city of Évora, Public Library, Forum Eugénio de Almeida and the garden annexed to the temple itself.

  • It's good to see but we have seen way better historic sites in our travels. However we enjoyed seeing the sights around the templo.  more »
  • It was exciting to meet the Roman temple of Diana, Goddess of the hunt. ... Super well maintained, all very clean, as all I met in Portugal. Those who like mythology as I, can not miss this opportunity.

  • 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.
