"Egyptian Temple" Sabatini Gardens Tip by el_ruso

Sabatini Gardens, Madrid: 16 reviews and 23 photos

 
 

Madrid is the last place one might expect to find an Egyptian temple, but here you are. It was a gift from Egypt for the help rendered by Spain to move its temples to higher ground to prevent being flooded after construction of a giant dam on the Nile. It is dedicated to god Debod, and is located within a block North from the Royal Palace. Inside there is a small museum.

Address: The gardens below the Royal Palace
Directions: one block North from the Royal Palace

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
