Owner description: 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.

A fantastic monument. A roman temple in the middle of a city square. Really great view. A must. Great place for taking pictures.

“Nice ruins”
Reviewed September 5, 2012

Nice ruins, with pretty gardens surrounding it. Would probably be more impressive to see it at sunset or at night. Evora is a lovely town and shouldn't be missed.

“amazingly preserved”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

Wonder around the temple and ask yourself how did this Roman monument survive? Amazingly well preserved, the temple is perfectly located on the highest spot of the city. At sunset it's even more beutiful. Don't miss it at night, when the ospt lights are on it. Everything around is secondary.

“A good ruin”
Reviewed August 15, 2012

I think it's probably a temple to Jupiter since Dianene temples were generally smaller. There's also evidence to suggest that the 'Diana' link dates from the 17th century and is without historical proof.
