Templo de Diana - Templo Romano de Évora

The Roman Temple of Évora was built in the first century AD. It is what remains of the city forum and was dedicated to the imperial cult, contrary to the common popular tradition, which identifies it as being dedicated to the Roman goddess of the hunt, which is why it is also known as the Temple of Diana. Built in marble and granite, is surrounded by Corinthian columns placed on a podium which is almost complete. The facade columns have disappeared, leaving only six in the rear and some on the sides. Symbol of the Roman presence in Portugal, it was listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and is located in the main square (forum) of the historic city centre.
