Description

Discover the Debod Temple, one of Madrid's most unusual monuments. This construction dates from the 2nd century BC, and, after centuries on Egyptian soil, was brought to Spain as a gift from Egypt.

Transportation of the temple, which was originally built by order of king Adikhalamani, began in 1960, coinciding with the start of works at the Aswan Dam. It finally arrived in Madrid in 1968, and can be seen in La Montaña Park, very close to Plaza de España. This is one of the few sites where you can view a complete set of ancient Egyptian archaeological remains far from Egypt itself. The monument is surrounded by beautiful gardens with a fountain, and is Madrid's oldest. It has a hall, several chapels and a terrace on the upper floor, and conserves its original decoration inside.
