This place has a very tranquil feel and the views are wonderful. The surrounding gardens provide plenty of shade from the hot July sun. The City Tour bus stops here so you can get off to admire the site and then get on the next bus.

These ancient Egyptian temples located in a very beautiful park, the story of the temples attracted us to visit, since these temples have been built in the early second century BC in Egypt, than as a sign of gratitude the Egyptian state donated the temple of Debod to Spain in 1968. The temple was rebuilt in one of Madrid's parks... More

The place is well maintained and could be easily accessed while passing through the important sightseeing areas in Mardid (plaza mayor, plaza del sol, and the royal palace, as well as the cathedral).

It was a good spot to take pictures. Really hot though and nowhere to hide from the sun. So we went, took some pictures and had to keep walking since there was no where to sit, away from the sun.

Templo de Debod is a beautiful stop in Madrid and is on the Hop on Hop Off Bus Tour route 1. An interesting structure which is really well preserved and you can still see the carvings at the top of each one and the way they reflect in the water is stunning and they're lit up at night which offers...

The Templo is nice to see but is really only a 10 minute activity. So try to include it in a general stroll around the area , as going to see it especially is going to disappoint.

A "hidden" secret in Madrid (all touristy books mention it though), lots of people gather in this park for sunset. The temple is lit up and often you'll hear random people playing some music. I've been inside the temple as well, its not worth visiting the interior, there isn't much to see.

The original temple is a gift to people of Spain from Egypt and is located on a nice hill near the Royal Palace. There is a small museum inside with free entry. I recommend to visit by sunset to feel the Egyptian atmosphere in Spanish environment.

My friend and I went to Templo de Debod to see the sunset and see Madrid all lit up. I highly, highly recommend you doing the same. Park Oeste is alive and cheerful at this hour. Some of the best views ever!
