Nice sunset

Really nice sunset with good views of Madrid surroundings. You can enjoy this views with your couple or kids (as there is a park very close).

I enjoyed very much. You can find a Egypt Temple in centre Madrid. It has beautifull views over there. Almudena Cathedral is closed and you can find nice walks since there. Nice dusk!! Recomended.

We walked along Gran Via towards Parque del Oeste and followed the signs to the Temple. We were recommended to take a look at this monument. Not a lot of time needed to look around but the setting is tranquil and relaxing and from there its an easy walk to the royal Palace.

Not much to see really but a great tick box nonetheless. The story behind this is that years back they moved an egyptian temple to Madrid. Why? No idea but it's pretty central and well worth walking to see. Will you need a lot of time? No, it's a quick visit. Is it worth the effort? Yes, definitely.

Having heard a lot about the Temple of Debod, and not having done a whole lot of research before my friend and I planned our visit to see it, we were somewhat disappointed by the temple's size: it is very small, and even dragging out the visit by reading every card, it was hard to spend more than 20 minutes...

We were so fortunate to be here in the late afternoon just as the golden winter sun caste it's rays on the reflecting pool. To the best of my knowledge this is one of two ancient Egyptian Temples saved during the construction of the Aswan Dam, the other being at the MET in New York. If you are here in... More

As far as I know this is an original piece of Egyptian archeology. It is very surprising to see a work so important to emerge from a simple and normal city park. The Debod Temple is a must-see, you can visit the inside of course paying the ticket fee, but can assure you that it is just as beautiful to... More
