Expect many other people trying to take their photo of the temple during sunset. It is easily accessible and located in a small garden. The view from the edge of the park is also nice with once of the churches rising dramatically in the background....More

Come to this breezy site on the west side of City Center. Best at night when the temple is lit to advantage. Very striking. The Templo was a 1972 gift from Egypt to Madrid. When not undergoing repairs, 30 people at a time can go...More

This is an impressive building in a lovely park. It's a great place to visit any time of day, but particularly beautiful at sunset - buy a few drinks or snacks and sit in the park to watch the sun go down. There's often buskers...More

If you want to have a great sunset in Madrid, this is the spot for you. Just grab a bottle of wine and go sit there and wait till magic happens. It's wonderfull.

An ancient temple in the middle of the city! Very lovely and a great setting (Madrid knows how to do parks!)

There is no water in this so there are obviously no reflections! Views accross the city from walking beyond the temple are good but nothing else to see. Not worth making a special trip to visit. There are lots of steps up to it so...More

October 2018. Not up to much at present. Ornamental lakes empty and no access to the temple itself with security guard on duty to make sure. Gardens are green with plenty of benches, large block paved areas will suit Segway users. Some modest views but...More

I suppose that the best time to pass by is sunset given the westward orientation of the temple. Unfortunately, this time I arrived only after sunset, but still was amazed by the simple beauty of the place. The temple is in the middle of a...More

This was disappointing because the grounds surrounding the temple were missing the water which is shown in the pictures and there is no grass to enhance its position. It looks very neglected.

Absolutely amazing!! One of the most original places in the Madrid. The best is surely at sunset. Really peaceful place full of great vibes. Love it! Don´t miss it!

Just south of the sprawling campus of the Complutense
University of Madrid, Arguelles exudes a fast-paced,
collegiate vibe. The main street, Calle Princesa, is
filled with twenty-somethings rushing between classes
and errands, meeting up with classmates, and grabbing
cheap beers and cheap eats. This is a prime shopping
spot where the major Spanish clothing and department
store chains are less busy than their downtown
