A piece of Egypt in Madrid

The Templo de Debod (Temple of Debod) was originally built in Aswan, in the Upper Egypt close to the Nile falls on the 2dn century BC.

The Templo de Debod was donated to Spain in 1968 and rebuilt in the west park near the Madrid Royal Palace. The Templo de Debod is one of the few Egyptian temples that you can visit outside Egypt.

The gardens that surrending the Templo de Debod are great to have a walk, to rest or just to have a great view of the Royal Palace and the Casa de Campo. There are also great if you want a nice place to do a running.

The visit to the Templo de Debod is free, the opening time are Tuesday to Sunday from 10:00 to 20:00. The Temple is close on Mondays and also in Madrid bank holidays like the 1st and 6th of January, the 1st of May and the 24th, 25th and 31st of December.

If you would like to take a 3D model of the Templo de Debod, you will find it in the official website. You will also find images of the original settlement in Egypt and all the history and details of the Temple for more than 2000 years of history.

The address of the Templo de Debod is Ferraz Street nº1 in case you are going by car or taxi. If you want to go by bus, there are plenty of lines that goes near, the buses number (1, 2, 74, 25, 39, 46, 75, 138, C1, 3, 44, 133, 148, C2). You can also go by subway, there are to stations, Plaza de España (L2, L3 and L10) and Ventura Rodriguez (L3).

Imagine strolling down narrow, sun-drenched streets lined with buildings that whisper tales of medieval times. La Latina isn't just a tourist trap; it's a living, breathing tapestry of history, pulsing with the energy of locals going about their day. Around every corner, you'll stumble upon charming plazas teeming with life, bustling bars overflowing with laughter, and enough tapas bars to make your stomach growl a flamenco.

Order a plate of patatas bravas (spicy potatoes – perfect for soaking up the sangria!), melt-in-your-mouth croquetas (fried ham and béchamel croquettes – because duh!), and juicy grilled chorizo, and thank me later.
