The temple, built in the first half of the first century AD. C., which as we can see today, it is completely surrounded by a portico more evident than was the forum of the Roman city, large square that stretched at its greatest extent, in the north-south direction and trace, in following archaeological work done in that area, we know that occupied all the space goes, roughly, the southern boundary of the garden to the Cathedral and the Palace of the Inquisition until Cadaval Palace. Rectangular in plan, with 25x15m, hexastilo (with six columns on its front) and periptero (with free speaker to involve the entire perimeter of the cell), was built in the Corinthian style with use of local materials, marble column bases and in capitals and granite structure of the podium, the pediments and entablature. A wrap it north, east and west in a tank signinum opus (lime mortar, sand and crushed pottery) created a water mirror certainly connected with the cult.

As you walk through Evora you can easily walk up to the ruins to view them. If you enjoy history and culture you should see this piece of history.

Nice and different for Alentejo, this Roman temple is located in a lovely garden/square where you can see the far way plains of Alentejo. It is not very big but it is still a very important ruin for the city and the region and a must-see when in Evora.

One of the most famous landmarks in the city and a symbol of the Roman presence in Portuguese territory. In addition to well maintained it is classified as a national monument which gives a sufficient status to deserve a visit.

Walking around the town pf Évora, is a fantastic surprise that suddenly appear this fantastic temple! The view from the temple is very nice, the position extremely interesting, because very close from the temple there are a lots of chirch, and the University, that is Unesco heritage site. Absolutely to visit this part of Évora.

It was neat to see the Roman pillars and steps, it was a little frustrating trying to find the inner city, but well worth it, with a map.

If you're used to ruins (i.e. you've visited Italy or Greece), these aren't much to see. However, they are in a lovely spot close to a parkette and some of the other attractions, so worth a gander while passing through.

Turn the corner and there is the Temple of Diana, near the Misericorda church. Very well preserved; not Rome - thankfully, and a great example of Roman handiwork. Gardens nearby give a good view over the countryside and the aqueduct. Worth a visit as you're walking around town. It's not possible to enter but you can walk round the outside... More

Nothing special if you have been in Rome already, but anway interesting to see this place. A very well known Pousada (Hotel) nearby. A nice Museum and viewpoint with a coffee shop to relax on the other side - enjoy ;)

Is the thing of going to Rome and do not see the Colosseum or the Vatican! Templo de Diana is an icon! It's ruins are the living proof of the History of this city
