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.

Don't get caught like us...I had specially taken my daughters there to the Roman temple during our trip in Alentejo. Unfortunately, it was under renovation and reworks - nothing to see!

Part of the reason for coming to Evora was to see these ruins. Unfortunately they were behind plastic for renovations.

It was disappointing to see that the whole thing was covered for restauration. It should have been done half at a time, that way tourists could still enjoy seeing some of it

This Roman ruin is composed of a few upstanding pillars apparently remaining from ancient times. It is in the center of historic Evora, next to a park. Nice to see, but nothing really special.

As mentioned, the place is covered for repair work and the strange thing is that the local tourist information didn't even told us while we asked them how to visit this place! Nothing special, extremely small and simplified version of Delphi (Greece).
