Templo Romano de Evora (Templo de Diana), Evora

(4.1/5 based on 2,000+ 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.

  • This is the typical monument that impresses both by the grandeur and magnificence as by the time it was built. Impossible not to perceive it and admire it. Beautiful.

  • 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.
