Temple of Évora Evora Reviews
Nice to walk past it Sep 11, 2010
Right next to the Cathedral Sé is the Roman Temple of Évora, which was built in the first century. It was probably dedicated to the Cult of Emperor Augustus. Fourteen of the original eighteen columns on this renowned relic are still standing, which gives testament to how well built the structure is. It is one of a kind in Portugal and it has become the city’s most famous landmark.
If you’ve seen Roman or Greek structures in other parts of Europe, this temple will not be very impressive. But since it’s close to the other sights, it’s no trouble to walk past it.
The terrace right in front of the temple has nice sandwiches for a decent price.
