The Roman Temple, Évora: 16 reviews and 37 photos

 
 

The small ruined temple is the most important monument to the Romans on the territory of Portugal, or, as it was called then, Lusitania. It is unknown to whom it was dedicated, but the locals decided to attribute it to Diana. The temple was built in the II century AD. Most of the foundation and half of the columns have survived, which is amazing giving the turbulent history of the place. You are not allowed to climb up for conservation purposes.
