"El Templo de Debod" Temple of Debod Tip by Quartzy

Temple of Debod, Madrid: 41 reviews and 72 photos


In the Parque del Oeste, you'll find this egyptian temple. Pretty weird, huh? I personally enjoy confusing people by telling them I visited an egyptian temple in Spain. ;)

Seriously, this is an extremely interesting stop: seeing an actual temple is nothing like seeing pictures of it. Inside the temple (two very small floors), you can see the drawings engraved in the rock all over the walls, with explanatory blurbs. On the second floor, an animation shows the construction of the temple.

This is obviously not about Spanish culture, but I strongly recommend you don't miss it. After all, it's free ;)
