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.

  • A very beautiful monument, which contrasts with a church next to you. A place full of history to see what made the monuments in Rome, it is worth visiting at night and day.

  • Are the ruins of a Roman temple, built in the early centuries of the Christian era. This well maintained and is within walking distance of the praça do Giraldo the main of Évora. Is an attraction that is outdoors and has no cost to meet.

  • I spent during the day to see the temple, I thought that is well maintained, as far as possible and that part of the Portuguese Roman estate has a great historical weight. I spent then, and found even more spectacular.

  • 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.
  • It is amazing to visit this Roman Temple in the center of city. It has interesting history for surviving such as long time.
  • A nice glimpse to the past of this place. Unfortunately, all you can you do is take pictures, but pair that with a nice position of the sun, and you get lovely pictures.
  • Much smaller than expected. But if in Évora, can't really miss it.
  • Great piece of history.
