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.

Stop by day and night to see the different atmosphere. It's not much compare to the ruins in Rome but Evora is where the Roman roamed so there is history to be appreciated and viewed from all sides. At night, the square and ruin is...More

Small Roman ruin situated in the public square. Not much of the original temple remains, but some of the intricate detail on the top of the columns is still in place.

Great spot for pictures and close to a free overlook of the city. No need to pay anything here :) Also it’s very close to the Se Cathedral so you can do both easily.

We stopped in Évora for this temple. Small but still impressive. Walk up to it from the main square to get the full impact.

Declared National Monument in 1910, it's the oldest monument in Evora. It is one of of the best conserved Roman temples in Iberia Peninsula . Built from granite and marble, has 14 columns which are 7.7 meters tall.

If you’re in Evora you might as well stop by here. Far from the most impressive Roman temple I’ve seen, but somewhat interesting. Certainly wouldn’t go out of my way to visit. Found the Roman baths that are under City hall to be far more...More

We visited the temple during the day and again at night. We got some amazing night photos. Be sure to visit it after dark.

Worth a gander when you are in town during a stroll. Fascinating to think of this having been built in the time of Christ.

These ruins are a must see! An incredible contrast to the typical architecture in Evora. There are cafes and gelato shops in front of the structure so you can hang out and take in the awesome view!
