Historic

This authentic Egyptian temple was built in the early 2nd century BC in the village of Debod, near the current location of Aswan dam. During the construction of Aswan dam, the temple was dismantled, shipped, and carefully reconstructed in Madrid. On the upper floor there is a small exposition, narrating the history and reconstruction of the temple.

Romantic at Sunset

The park surrounding the temple has excellent views overlooking the city. The view from the edge of the hillside is an amazing panorama of the city skyline and is the perfect spot to watch the sunset, when for a few short minutes, everything appears to be bathed in an intense orange light.

The temple and gates are illuminated at night, creating a clear beautiful reflection of it in the water.
