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.

  • Point which deserves a visit day and night. Estimated saved, deserves the passage and the typical selfie

  • It is a very intriguing visit, where he takes our thoughts on how the engineers of the time they made their projects. the size of the stone fittings only are fascinating indentations and weight

  • It is a Roman temple apparently dedicated to Diana. The State of preservation is possible in the face of the your antique and bottom consists of a platform surrounded the columns with the respective capitals. Allows you to get an idea of the stylistic and religious tastes who preceded for over 2,000 years

  • 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.

Where to stay in Evora

Take advantage of Evora's array of ancient and historical sites by staying in one of the many mid-range hotels located within its medieval core. Thanks to a mix of Roman, Moorish, and later European buildings, the entire center is listed as a World Heritage Site, so this area provides a great base for sightseeing by foot. To save a little on accommodations, you can also check into one of the hostels in town, most of which are located in the city center or on its winding residential streets that branch off from the main squares. These usually have shared, dorm-style rooms, but can get you right in the midst of the action at a very low cost.
