Nice quiet place in the city. Great views of the city. Very close the Royal Palace. Out of the way enough for crowds to be less.

This is a nice aside trip, different to any of the other sights in Madrid. It is in a nice park, and is very photogenic, and is near the palace. There can be a bit of a queue, but its in the shade and is in the open air. The temple itself is fairly small, so wont take long to... More

Great photo opportunities to be had outside the temple. We really enjoyed it here as it was not too crowded and we were able to browse the interesting facts at our own leisure. We did find it stifling hot inside and would not want to be visiting in the summer heat with the oppressive crowds. Definitely worth a visit here... More

Lovely temple moved from Egypt to save it from the Aswan Dam, just like the Temple of Dendur in the Metropolitan Museum in NY. However, it is much better than the latter: it contains beautiful hieroglyphs, and a small museum. Besides, admission is free, and it is located on lovely grounds where you can go jogging. We love to go... More

W went here and we felt outside of Madrid. The temple is gorgeous and very different from everything you see in Madrid. It's is also very relaxing, you can sit there enjoy the sunset or walk around the park and see great views of the city. It is very close to Plaza España and Gran Via.

Nice place to visit and it's having a great view over the city! The temple is in the middle of park with trees and flowers. Only minus was that there was quite many tourists, so quit crowded! Worth to visit!

It was good to visit this temple and see some Egyptian carvings. The entry is free but the temple closes in the afternoon so we could not really spend as much time as we wanted. I dont get it why it closes in the afternoon as its not a real place of worship anymore.

Templo de Debod was originally built to the south of Aswan but due to the construction of the Asman Dam in 1960 many monuments and sites would be lost as a result. UNESCO asked for international help to save a lot of historically important sites and as Spain had saved temples in Abu Simbel, Egypt donated Templo de Debod to... More
