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.

The main advantage of this 1st-2nd century temple is that it is relatively uncrowded compared to places like Rome and Greece. You can walk right up to it and see the columns closely. There is no explanation about it on-site and scholars disagree if it...More

This is located in the city center; no special bookings needed if you are in Evora. Quite impressive to see this ruin that withstood the rest of time.

These are, from what we heard, the most preserved roman ruins of the whole Portugal. You must see them by night.

They have scaffolding to prevent people from climbing up and around, but there are lots of good vantage points for photos!

It's worth seeing, though compared to Evora other attractions it's about middling. But it's location next to the Pousada and Ducal palace means there is much more to see.

Like many ancient monuments, this one owes its survival to a series of fortuitous events (the columns were walled in) and how fortunate that was: the Corinthian columns are exquisite and their location next to the cathedral ideal.
