4.2
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.

  • Surprising to see this kind of monument in the heart of Evora well placed for beautiful photos. Accessible and well-indicated

  • This Roman temple is not worth a great detour in itself, but if you are at the cathedral you should visit it for free. This is typical for Evora: different history periods are immediately next to each other.

  • It's not big in size but huge in history. Dating back to the first century after Christ. The pillars still quite preserved.

  • Interesting historical landmark of Évora. A few pillars remain, outlining the ruins of an old Roman temple. Located close to the city center, this place also offers a small park to sit and enjoy the sun.
  • Evora is such a beautiful place to visit. Magnificent buildings, rich history. The city is built inside the castle walls. Many little streets and shops and a beautiful mix of old and new.
  • Completely different to the prevalent architecture of the area. Only a few pillars remain. But interesting.
  • If you like old Roman temples this is worth a visit. Pretty well preserved. Striking contrast with the surrounding Iberian architecture and nearby Christian churches.
  • Nice town, good restaurants, great views, countryside, cobblestone streets, refurbished buildings, Roman Ruin 13 century renovated ABB houses!
