The Roman Temple, Évora: 16 reviews and 37 photos
The Roman Temple in the center of Evora is often called the Diana Temple because it is believed to have been built in honor of the goddess Diana. The temple was built sometime between the first and third centuries AD. It is modeled on the Acropolis in the Corinthian style, and is a unique example of this type of architecture in Portugal. It was later used as an armory, slaughterhouse, and theater, before being rescued and preserved as an architectural relic in 1870.
