The Roman Temple, Évora: 16 reviews and 37 photos
The centrepiece of Evora (along with Giraldo Square), both geographically and spiritually, is its ancient Roman Temple, commonly called Diana Temple for the Roman goddess. Built sometime in the 100-200 AD time period, this amazing old structure with its Corinthian columns has managed to withstand the ravages of both time and human interference! Over the centuries since it construction, it has been used as an armoury, a theatre and a slaughterhouse. However, it is now preserved as an amazing historical relic after its value was finally recognized in 1870.
