Templo Romano de Evora (Templo de Diana), Evora

Must see · Religious Site · Tourist Spot
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.

  • The area around the Roman temple is definitely worth visiting. There is a good view right next to the temple. The temple itself is not much, there is only a small part still standing and there is almost no information given about it.
  • Temple in honour to the Diana godess which is well preserved. The temple is beautiful any time of the day although I prefer by sunset with a beautiful sky in the background. The temple is in the middle of a big square so it is free, accessible and worth to visit. Recommended 😊
  • Just loved this beautiful city. We were in the middle of it all.and could not ask for a better experience. We loved walking around and food was great
  • I visited this place whilst on a recent cycling holiday in Portugal. It was very interesting to look around.
  • The history of the area is good to learn so this temple can be put in perspective.Very nice room
