  • Lovely historical place to visit. It is nice to take some pictures and spend time as there is a lovely park next to it. People play music and sell some souvenirs. I can totally recommend it. I went there two times during my holidays as I enjoyed it. Also the view from there is gorgeous. You can see over Madrid.
  • It's a one of the best spots for a panoramic view of the palace grounds in Madrid. There are a few steps to climb until you reach the temple and you can only see the relics of Egyptian temple from outside. The lawns around are a good place to lay down and read a book or just relax. Bring a picnic mat though. People selling beer will bother you every now and then. But apart from that, it's a great place for a relaxing evening
  • Lovely place. There was no water in the surrounding pool. Entrance into the main temple is free but since only 30 people are allowed at anytime, you should expect a waiting time. Great view of the Royal Palace from this place.
  • An ancient Egyptians temple that was gifted to Spain. Entrance is free, but controlled to limit the number of guests inside at once. Expect a wait to get in, but definitely visit inside. There are interesting facts inside, most offered in English and a nice replica of where the temple originally sat.
  • A gateway to an oasis in the city, this site boasts picture-perfect scenes, green space for picnics, and playgrounds for kids. Everyone is happy. But ahead of all that, I particularly enjoy jogging up to the temple for an early-morning stretch/yoga. Peaceful and renewing.
