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.

It is indeed a huge historical structure, to many extend broken but still head high with Roman pride. Nice feelings to visit.

This is an impressive temple ruin set in an attractive square next to the royal palace. Well worth finding. Diana was goddess of wild animals, fertility and domestic animals - maybe they were shorts on Goddesses the day roles were allocated!

Located at the top of the hill it quite literally takes your breath away when you round the corner and see it for the first time. The only downside for me is the fact that they allow cars so close to the temple.

You will see this striking temple as you walk around Evora. Definitely worth a look and looks particularly striking when lit up at night.

This was a beautiful spot to view in Evora. It's small, but a nice centerpiece built hundreds of years back by the Romans.

Good backdrop for photos. Couldn't find any information at the site, it is just there. It looks in very good condition and is made from stone or limestone rather than marble. Another place worth visiting in this ancient lovely city.

The Romans were all over this region but this ruin is in particularly good shape. There's a little coffee shop right next to the adjacent park so take a break and enjoy the view of the temple.

There really is not much to see except the columns but it is interesting nonetheless. You should do your homework before visiting so you will know what you are seeing or take a local tour that will give you all the information you could ever...More
