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.

  • Very well preserved Roman monument. The tradition mistakenly says that it was dedicated to the goddess Diana which is not true. In the past it was possible to climb it but this is no longer allowed in order to preserve the monument. The columns went by restauration works some months ago
  • Roman temple in the heart of historical city, part of UNESCO World Heritage. Amazing experience you should not miss if you are in this part of Portugal.
  • Beautiful old structure. I love to sit in the park and take sunset photos because there's a great vantage point for sunset photos. And it's romantic.
