Owner description: 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.

If you have seen Roman ruins elsewhere this little temple is probably no big deal. But if you have not seen what the Romans built then this place is right inside the city walls and easily accessible, free, and OK as ruins go. You can see the base, some columns and get the idea of what it might have looked like nearly 2000 years ago. Since Evora is already a somewhat touristy town it makes for an easy way to see a Roman ruin.
