Fantastic Egyptian temple, very well maintained, The signages need some improvement though. This is free entry, and very well regulated with only 60 people allowed at one time.

The Templo de Debod is a very nice place to see and one is surprised to see its Egyptian architecture in the city. As a sign of gratitude for the help provided by Spain in saving the temples of Abu Simbel, the Egyptian state donated the temple of Debod to Spain in 1968. This is a very good place to... More

I've lived in Madrid for a few years and this is one of my favorite parts of the city. It has a spectacular view of the park, and is stunningly beautiful at sunset. Very romantic for couples and is located near other cool must sees as well. Just a few minutes walk away you can find the Teleferico, which is... More

Spent time only on the outside, but it seemed possible to go inside as well. Did not check that due to the enormous amount of people there - a bit too crowded - but on the other hand understandable as it is a great place and a must-see, Egypt-fan, or not!

Very nice and clean. The park around is serene and the view is nice. Also the cable cars are just five minute walk so you can combine the two things into your morning. Well worth it!

Was excited to see an old Egyptian (?) temple. I felt like I should have gone with a little more background knowledge though. Also, I hate to admit, we didn't go in. Just the outside was beautiful. Beautiful view of the Cathedral and Royal Palace from here. Tad touristy but in Madrid what isn't? Totally worth the hike. This was,... More

Super small and super cramped. But it's worth it, especially understanding the history of how the temple got there (won't spoil it for you here). Head to see the inside (check daily times at the gate), then stick around for photos around the water and scenic views. It's not a 'must-do' but certainly worth the time.
