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.

“Very interesting structure”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

Just having a look at the ruins of this Roman Temple is delightful. Nearby there are various museums and a great view of the land surrounding the city. The nearby cathedral is also very much worth a visit.

Evora is not a big town so be sure to walk by this site and see it for a few minutes. It is kind of cool to be walking through a more modern part of the city with it's shopping district and then all of a sudden you see the ruins of a 2000 year old temple smack in the middle of a little square. Other than that it is pretty unremarkable though and they have very little in the way of description on it's history or raison d'etre.

It is one of the most importante monuments from the city... It is outside in a square, no ticket, no payment... You just go around... A nice piece of history!
