Templo Romano de Evora (Templo de Diana), Evora

4.1
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.

  • I guess I was in the middle of ancient history, the monument is beautiful. Stay Uptown, in the middle of a courtyard. Wonderful.

  • The temple sits in front of the old convent. You won’t need much time to visit, as it is not that large. The best time to visit is after dark as it is lit up, and the view is much more dramatic than d...  more »

  • Would have been a 5-star rating but for the scaffolding and plastic sheeting surrounding the entire structure. Beautiful area all the same.
  • The only part visible was a stone platform. The rest was covered in scaffolding and tarpaulin. Slightly disappointed.
  • Architect nerd, this is a right place smelling history in the surroundings of Evora - although the whole city smells history. Some families members who are not fans of history will find this place impressive, but definitely will be amazed by the view of the city a few meters ahead.
  • Deffo 5 stars if it's not wrapped in polythene, which it was in mid Sept 2017 (for restoration, which will take about 120 days.) One of the finest Roman remains you will see.
  • 19 September 2017 and Templo Romano is under renovation and hidden behind temporary covers. A beautiful praca though.
