Photographer's Note

This is the best known part of the historical centre of Évora and probably the most photographed also.
On the left side, we can see a perspective of the Temple of Diana. Probably built in the 3rd Century AC, nobody knows exactly which divinity it was devoted to. Later, in the 4th or 5th Century AC it was destroyed, probably during the persecutions against Paganism. Today it is, for sure, one of the most visited monuments in Évora and also its ex-libris.
In front, we have the tower of the Cathedral. It’s really worthy a visit. Half fortress, half temple, it has an amazing combination of Romanesque and Gothic elements. It’s also possible to go up till the terrace or even till the tower and enjoy an amazing view of the city.
Then, on the right, we have another building; it’s the Museum of Évora.
