Just 3 monuments. The tour bus advertises it as a free attraction. It’s ok and you can take your picture, but not much more.

The templo was given to Madrid for free as a thank you from Egypt before they flooded the area for the Aswan Dam. It's free. I like the temple in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC, but enjoyed this one just as much. The...More

The Debod Temple is an authentic Egyptian temple dedicated to the gods Amon and Isis. It dates back to the 4th century BC and until 1960 stood in Egypt. When the Aswan Dam was under construction the temple and other monuments needed to be relocated.

Go at after sundown to see the lights but not terribly late as I've seen the lights go off. Nice overlook with views of Madrid and the Royal Palace and Cathedral. Very interesting from a cultural perspective. The temple was donated by Egypt to Spain...More

This temple is beautiful, however if you are currently traveling (June/July), don't bother going in the evening as there is no lighting as well as no water around the temple.

I wouldn't make a special trip for this. But it's a few minutes from the Palacio Real. There is no water in the 'lake' at the moment. Probably looks best at night.

While spending several days in Madrid, we discovered the Parque de la Montana, a beautiful park near the Royal Palace. Much to our surprise a highlight was the Templo de Debod, transplanted from Upper Egypt to Madrid. This happened because Spain helped Egypt back in...More
