The magnificent temple of Debod, an original temple in southern Egypt, in lower Nubia, fills the picture. It had to be moved to create the Aswan Dam, the construction of which threatened many monuments and archaeological sites. UNESCO launched an international appeal to help save them in 1960 and 1968, and Spain succeeded. Moved and rebuilt, it was presented to the public in 1972, and is the only Egyptian temple that exists in Spain. They don't always light it up, but when they do, it turns into the perfect place to capture the sunset, making it one of the most photographed spots in Madrid. From the balcony you can also enjoy a splendid view of the Royal Palace and the Almudena Cathedral.
