Sunset

The best place in Madrid to watch the Sunset. I've been here several times with friends; once for partying, once for just getting together and talk and even for a birthday party.

Certainly an interesting place to visit for the vistas of the surrounding area - the Temple itself was interesting to see & would have been more interesting to learn about except for the attending security guard who was to say the least not 'people friendly' and may be should start considering work that involves no contact with the public -...

The Templo de Debod was a gift from the Egyptian Government to the Spanish Government for Spain's participation in the rescue of the Abu Simbel monument. This temple is small but gives Madrid a unique monument.

The temple is really quite small but is in the middle of a pretty park with lots of trees and grass. It offers a tranquil place to relax in the sun, read a book, or just see Almudena Cathedral and the Royal Palace from a distance.

You should check it out if you are in the area since it's well located and has views all over the city centre. By sunset it has a great view over the temple and the ancient part of Madrid. There are also some nice places close by to grab a drink and maybe jump on a cable car ride from... More

Once you're past the fascination of seeing an Egyptian temple on an European capital (outside a museum, I must point out), it's pretty much a relaxing place with pretty views towards the Cathedral. I mean, it's interesting due to the fact that it's an authentic Egyptian relic, but other than this, little more.

When in Madrid you must visit this historic Monument. There was a small queue which was organized by guard on door really well, not much of a wait. To actually see inside this historic Temple is awesome and we were amazed at free admission.

Whilst we didn't go inside, we did take a good walk around and where the only people there. It is a beautiful structure and well worth a visit.
