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.

The partially restored Temple of Diana in Evora is a sight to behold but it is only part of what you see at this location. The Convent and Posada is right next door and the scenic vistas in all locations are amazing. The Se, museums and galleries are just around the corner. I continues to be amazed that a smaller...

Visited the ruins. The ruins are very well situated, close to a nice market, some good wine tasting and impressive churche. The ruins themself are not that impressive, except that it's impressive to think that they are well preserved after all these centuries.

hard to rate this as it has been reconstructed so it can't really be called a ruin can it? It is impressively lit at night.

If you have ever seen any Roman ruins before, then there is nothing special about the few columns remaining of a Roman temple. However, the location on a hilltop is beautiful and offers great views.

We were told to go and view the Temple by locals, very impressive, looks great at night time. In the centre of the city on top of the hill. Get your walking shoes on

This is a well preserved archaeological site. It is worth going to see if you are in Evora or in the general area.

Hard to say much about this turn, it is a striking sight just inside the city walls, more so when it is lit at night. No visit to Evora would be complete without seeing and photographing this.
