The temple itself was closed but we were able to visit the grounds on a half day city tour of Madrid. The views of the city from this area were amazing.

I am of Egyptian origin and my review has to be taken in context. I have no idea how that temple ended up in Spain and nothing around the temple explains it: donated, loaned, stolen?. Looks like a mini Karnak entrance. It gives a 1/1000th...More

The history behind the Temple is interesting and to see it in person is cool. Lovely area to walk around and admire the architecture. As it gets really crowded and people love to sit around it, it can get quite annoying especially if you want...More

No water in the moat & the monument was very tatty. Have been to Egypt & there is absolutely no comparison with the temples there. Don’t waste your time!

What kind of technical difficulties could an Egyptian Temple have?! That said, it's a beautiful piece of UNESCO heritage from Egypt in Spain, so it's worth a visit. The fountains around the Temple are, unfortunately, drained. The complex still looks impressive and the views from...More

The temple is closed right now for renovations but it is still worth a quick stop for a photo. It makes for a much better photo near sunset than during the day.

Not worth a special trip at all. I’ve been twice in the fall and the reflecting pool is not even full. Cannot go in it. OK to see for size & scale, but enjoyed the park itself more than just looking at the temple.

I just loved the view of this place and history of this places is far more astonishing. There are lot of things to do in Madrid but make sure you don't miss this one.

I really enjoyed visiting this temple in Madrid. I believe there are only two Egyptian temples outside of Egypt: this one and the one in New York. It is a really nice building (inside and outside) with beautiful views of the city. Having said that...More

I came to the Templo de Debod late morning and I was not impressed at all. This wasn't stunning at all although it can be viewed for free. That said when I visited the water was drained. I feel this is only worth visiting at...More

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
