What's Vora04? Looks Roman.

It should be Évora. It may be that the accent mark rendered the first character unreadable. I couldn't upload the photo named Guimarães until I took the "~" off the "a" because pbase couldn't read it.

Anyway, Évora had a Roman presence and the temple you're seeing is one of the few remains of that. It was walled up a long time ago and used for storage, which preserved it. The temple remained somewhat intact inside the wall and was only rediscovered in the last hundred years or so and unwalled, otherwise the pillars would have been long gone. Portugal, from countryside to towns to cities, exceeded our expectations by a long shot. Highly recommended.
