Formal gardens surround the temple, it has great view of outskirts of Madrid and very safe. We did go during the Feast of the Virgin.

An old temple that was gifted by Egypt to Spain. Nothing to see inside but it looks really out-of-place in the middle of a modern city. I highly recommend the nearby view as it is on a hill + the sunset looks just fable-like here.

We recently visited while undergoing renovation. It's is prettier in the late evening when the light offers a stunning background. It can be visited quickly and is an interesting monument when considered its age and symbolism.

Nice park setting but the Temple is rather uneventful. Seems a bit out of place but then again, it is an Egyptian temple. Would be nice if the security guards didn't stand in the doorway so you can get an unobstructed picture.

A wonder historical site. An Egyptian temple rebuilt on a Spanish site. A gift to the Spaniards. The views are fabulous. There are also local artists selling jewellery, some of which are handmade.

Go here to watch the sunset and enjoy an amazing view of the Royal palace and the cathedral. The temple is magical and transports your mind to the Nile. One of my favourite places in Madrid. Great for pictures ;)

Without the water and being closed for renovations, this was a bit dull and nothing like the advertising pictures! Nice views from the rear, across Madrid. Set in a park used by joggers, walkers etc.

Luckily the weather held for this quick climb up to the top of a hill near the Royal Palace - and I was rewarded with excellent views of palace and city - you really can see for miles so it's worth the effort. This ancient...More

Just south of the sprawling campus of the Complutense
University of Madrid, Arguelles exudes a fast-paced,
collegiate vibe. The main street, Calle Princesa, is
filled with twenty-somethings rushing between classes
and errands, meeting up with classmates, and grabbing
cheap beers and cheap eats. This is a prime shopping
spot where the major Spanish clothing and department
store chains are less busy than their downtown
