Evora's most famous monument is the Roman Temple. Lying right in the centre of the city, the temple, which dates from the 2nd century, is one of Portugal's few remaining monuments form the Roman occupation. The temple perahps owes it's survival to it's continuous use down the centuries. In medieval times it was used as an execution site while later it was used as a slaughterhouse.
