  • Beautiful temple, worth seeing. My visit was almost a half day, but in the evening I guess is the best time. This located in a high part of the city which allows views of Madrid rather than beautiful.

  • The Temple of Debod is a haven of peace and relaxation in the more posh Madrid of the Austrias... To go (to non-tourist hours and get lost in its Park and admire a part of Egypt in Madrid) no more magic...

  • I highly recommend to go to the Temple of Debod late in the day, when the sun sets on the horizon. The temple is currently closed and cannot be visited. On the other hand, the view from this place is beautiful and there is always a lot of people at these times, tourists and locals. The night-time illuminations of the temple are beautiful and reflections in the liquid mirror games makes the place quite magical. A lovely moment in the Madrid crowd.

  • They say it has opening hours but in fact, there is none... the inside of the temple is always closed. It's in a center of a huge park with incredible view on the royal palace and the cathedral. The temple itself is beautiful and even more on sunset. The park that surrounds it is nice, great place to unwind, do sport, lay down, tan... also very family friendly. I highly recommend
  • A must see between 6 and 8. The place around is amazing you will see bands. It's nice also to have a seat before arriving in the parque close to it. Maybe you will can't enter the temple because of the queue and they close it at 7.45. Or you have to be there earlier . But it's not a big deal because you can take pictures next to it with the amazing view when Sun rises. Too much people will be there
  • Beautiful temple and surrounding park for a quiet nice walk. You can find the rose garden close by and the majestic royal palace as well. I miss Madrid so much!
  • Cool on the outside, if it's hot out don't expect to be able to go inside. Hours are posted to go inside but they aren't letting anyone in. I asked a guard after our second trip there (we went again to see if it was open and a different time), he said it wouldn't be open to visitors until probably October because it is too hot. This info is not posted anywhere at the temple or on their website, which is very frustrating.
  • Very interesting to see such a temple here, a big park in Madrid. The best moment to go there is at sunset. Take the time to appreciate the old stones.
