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.

“Wonderfully set in the town.”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

It is majestic. A fitting tribute to the goddess. It is easy to find and easy to wander around...its close to other historical monuments

“Well preserved”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

Considering the location of the "temple" it's surprisingly well preserved. There is a nice church and a small palace near by that is also worth checking out.

“It looses its spirit because of nearby buildings”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

This is another example of bad influence of relatively modern architecture to Roman ruins' spirit. A small square where the columns stand make it rather a kind of monument you hardly believe to be a ancient building.

“small little ruin”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

Worth a photo when you pass by otherwise not worth going out of your way. Small little bunch of columns on a side street.
