Temple of Diana
Located at the heart of the city and housing since the 15th century a stately home (The Corbos’ Palace), the construction of this building on the land of the temple prevented it from being deteriorated. Although the local historian Don Bernabé Moreno de Vargas stated this, it has been proved that the building was dedicated to the Emperor’s devotion. The building is peripteral (surrounded by columns) with six columns at the front and it has a rectangular ground plan.
It was built with granite from the nearby quarries. Its main façade faces the forum and had a semicircular frontispiece, nowadays reconstructed, and it was accessed through a stairway. Some renaissance remains from the Conde de los Corbos’ Palace can be seen on the front, windows and a double gallery constructed with Roman and Visigothic materials.
