About Roman Temple of Evora

The Roman Temple of Evora was an impressive Roman monument which dates back to the second – maybe even the first – century AD and is now a pretty ruin.

Often known as the Temple of Diana (Templo de Diana), The Roman Temple of Evora has been attributed to this Roman deity as well as to the Emperor Augustus and to Jupiter.

Whatever the original use of this now-picturesque ruin, the Roman Temple of Evora is one of the most important sites in this UNESCO-listed city centre. It is comprised of several Corinthian columns rising out of a large base.
