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.

Reviewed March 27, 2013

Nice to visit and great photo ops. Right in the middle of town. Took plenty of pictures. Not much else to say. Sit on a bench in the nearby park and enjoy the view.

“random Roman temple”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

The temple of Diana is really rather random - you almost stumble across it in the street with no fanfare or any kind of hype. It is what it is: a photo opportunity

“A Glimpse Into the Roman Empire”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

If you've fallen in love with Roman history, or even if you haven't, this is a must-see site in Evora. It's pretty well preserved, and it's stunning to contemplate the far-reaching Roman empire in its glory years.

“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
