The temple to the goddess.

It is a large building; it was probably one of the most majestic buildings in Roman Mérida. It is one of the religious buildings that remains in its original place. It belongs to Mérida’s Roman archaeological site and has the UNESCO World Heritage designation.

It has a rectangular floor plan, surrounded by columns (peripteros) and a hexastyle (with six columns at the front). It is raised on a base. The column capitals are Corinthian, with a ribbed shaft and made of granite. Next to the temple there was probably a garden with a pond in Roman times. A palace for the Count of Los Corbos was built in the 16th century, using the temple's structure as the base.
