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.

This first century temple had been converted into a slaughter house during the Middle Ages. It was not until an Italian architect recognized the forms of the columns embedded in the slaughterhouse walls in the early 19th century that they began a restoration. A couple...More

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

Unfortunately the building was having some repairing it was covered with net's, but the garden at front the view was nice over the city

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).

Shame to have missed seeing this temple - but it's completely covered at the moment. Evora is a beautiful town so there's lots of other things to do - enjoy it.
