  • Surprising to see this kind of monument in the heart of Evora well placed for beautiful photos. Accessible and well-indicated

  • This Roman temple is not worth a great detour in itself, but if you are at the cathedral you should visit it for free. This is typical for Evora: different history periods are immediately next to each other.

  • Interesting historical landmark of Évora. A few pillars remain, outlining the ruins of an old Roman temple. Located close to the city center, this place also offers a small park to sit and enjoy the sun.
  • Evora is such a beautiful place to visit. Magnificent buildings, rich history. The city is built inside the castle walls. Many little streets and shops and a beautiful mix of old and new.
