We were recommended to go here in the evening by someone in the hotel - we were so pleased we did! Although the temple wasn't open the photos we took of the sun going down over the buildings and trees were amazing and reflected beautifully in the water. Further on are views of the Old City where again we got... More

The little temple is cleverly located on a hill and it looks very picturesque during sunset and in the evening. It opens at 6pm in the afternoon, but it's worth looking at even if it's closed. About 10mins walk from the metro station.

t is a famous place because besides being a small Egyptian temple in the center of the city, people go there to enjoy the sunset which is beautiful but also were lucky that night we went it was full moon and it was lovely to see how the moon shone this temple.

Visit this true Egyptian temple in the centre of Madrid. The Temple was dismantled for the building of the Aswan dam and given to Spain as a gift. It's free to visit, make sure you go upstairs but try to go before it gets too hot as the upstairs can get very warm.

We visited on a Monday and were disappointed to find out the monument wasn't open. This wasn't a problem as we walked around it and took our photos........ It is situated in a nice park which has fantastic views across the city so is well worth a visit. Only a short walk away is the cable car attraction.

The temple was very nice with the water feature. The park around it was lovely and everyone in the area seemed nice and friendly. Its not the most exciting attraction in Madrid, but it is very relaxing.

This temple does not feature in all the guide books, but it is well worth a visit, in a fine position on the edge of the main city centre and above the river. The display inside the temple was very interesting.

Its about 10 mins from Plaza Espana up hill. behind the temple, there is a big open area overlooking part of the city. Visit an hour before sunset for great photos. The reflections in the pool makes pictures stunning.

Made a short detour from my Plaza Espana hotel to the Park/Temple on a Saturday morning before heading to the Palace. The park was full of families and the temple was being visited by mostly locals. Great views, lovely photos and a relaxing scenic spot to enjoy Madrid with others. The temple was interesting, also.

Free temple and very picturesque. Great for photos. On bus tour route, so worth a look. We went at a really quiet time, so got some great shots with no one else to wander into the back of our photos.
