  • It's not just marketing, the most beautiful sunset of Madrid is in the gardens of the Temple of Debod. The place is well maintained, very beautiful, the view is awesome and the pictures turned out great. Enjoy and see the temple. Recommend.

  • From here there are mixed views of Madrid: Skycrapers of Plaza de España, Egyptian Templo de Debod, Casa del Campo and Royal Palace. Beautiful place. 
  • Nice place to visit in the evenings. Good green park around the site. Peaceful atmosphere. Nice views of the city. Well worth a visit. 
  • Great free temple visit well worth the time. If you get the chance go for sunset as the place takes on a even more spectacular quality. The park just north of here is also amazing.
  • This is a beautiful historical monument located almost in the heart of of the city. It is located just at the edge of my favorite park in Madrid. This is a real Egyptian temple with real hieroglyphics on the wall. It's such a cool building, and it is completely free. The museum guides inside say that it was gifted to the people of Spain after their assistance in helping to restore parts of ancient Egypt. I don't how much of that is true, or if it was merely another act of European appropriation, but regardless, it's an amazing homage to Egyptian history, and here so many people can experience it, for free! I like upstairs because there, you can see a scale replica of the city where was the temple was located, and you can visualize how it was so many thousands of years ago. Also there are the most preserved hieroglyphics that you can get up close to and try to decipher for yourself. Just don't touch.
  • A sight to see in passing, but not worth going out of your way. The museum inside has 3 small rooms of content that only serve to narrate the hieroglyphics on the inner walls. Since it was sent to Spain in 1962, there is not much history to it. However, the park surrounding the temple offers some grass for shade or sun ideal for sunbathing or relaxing (not enough for sorts) and offers a distant view of Palacio Real.
  • As the entrance is free there's nothing that should keep you from visiting this temple. It was given to Spain in gratitude for the archaeological help Spanish scientists offered for preserving the ancient Egyptian monuments - or at least so they say in the museum. Nicely done museum inside, don't get scared by the queue, it moves forward quickly
  • Quite strange place. It has ancient heart, but what is around doesn't visually fit well its ancient part. Anyway, it's impressive to realise, how old these stones are!
