Love the history of how this temple came to Madrid. On top of a hill with nice views. Not open very long hours however and after going all the way there was turned away 15 min before closing so I never got inside.

My kids enjoyed visiting the temple many times while we were in Madrid. It is such an interesting surprise that a real Egyptian temple was transported to Madrid to thank the Spanish archaeologists who helped relocate a number of temples that would be flooded with the construction of the Aswan Dam in Egypt. The temple is small, but it is... More

After a whole day of walking on the streets of Madrid when the sun was starting to set, I thought this would be the perfect time to head off to the Temple of Debod which is an ancient Egyptian temple. There isn't much to see in the temple itself but the use of water around the temple gives it a... More

It's a long walk...way past the palace...to get to the Templo de Debod. When we got there, the first question that came to mind was ... "was it worth the walk?" The answer? It depends. If you have never seen an Egyptian temple, this would be a good experience without actually going to Egypt. It's much smaller than what is... More

My daughter and I more or less stumbled upon this attraction because it was so close to our hotel. It was the first thing we saw in Madrid, and, though we found it interesting, our visit was affected by the number of young students on a field trip. It is simply too small to handle the number of people that... More

You don't expect to find an authentic Egyptian temple in a Madrid park, but this the real thing. It's a nice walk through history. The grounds are beautiful and admission is free.

This Egyptian temple was a gift to Spain for its contributions to helping save some of Egypt's archaeological treasures during the building of the Aswan dam. A couple of gates and a stone box with fading hieroglyphics. Short of spectacular, but interesting. You can go into the temple and look around. There is a top floor display that includes a... More

A free attraction, with an interesting walk to and from the Plaza de Epana metro station. A worthwhile stop.

An Egyptian temple, perfectly reconstructed stone by stone in Madrid. Nice explanations, the place looks in perfect state, beautiful surroundings. And it can be visited for free. Highly recommendable.
