A great visit

The Temple of Debod is an ancient Egyptian royal temple in Madrid. It is over 2000 years old and is made of blocks of stone removed from Egypt. When, in the mid-20th century, the Egyptian government decided to build the Aswan Dam, they made an appeal to UNESCO to give this temple back to them, as otherwise they would sink into the waters of the Nile. Spain was one of the countries that responded to the call and in 1961 the temple was dismantled but not it wouldn't reach Madrid until 1970. When it was at its best, in addition to the main chapel (dedicated to the goddess Isis), it had two walls that surrounded it but currently only the pillars at the doors survive. Today it has become a symbol of the Spanish capital and is a magical place to watch sunsets. A visit is a must and if possible go inside so you can learn about its nature, use and history.
