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.

It was interesting to see something Egyptian in Spain 🇪🇸 and the story behind but there was no water around the temple which made it look different from the pics online

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
