Templo Debod Atardecer

The Oeste (West) park, very close to Plaza España, not only hides the Temple of Debod, an Egyptian monument with a very curious history, but just behind this monument you can contemplate one of the most spectacular views in Madrid. Every afternoon, locals and tourists sit around to watch the sun set from afar, no matter how cold or hot it may be.

From there you can see the gardens of the Royal Palace, as well as a panoramic view of Casa de Campo as well as the Guadarrama mountains. A skyline that has changed over the years to offer us a view of the diversity of both urban and natural landscapes in this cosmopolitan city.

On the left you can see the Royal Palace, the Almudena Cathedral with its dome and two pointed towers, and the huge basilica of St. Francis the Great. Between the palace and the cathedral you can also see the Chapel of San Isidro integrated into the Church of San Andrés, in the shape of a smaller dome. From the viewpoint you will be able to contemplate all these rather old and mostly religious buildings. To the right you can see some modern buildings, such as the Palacio de Vistalegre, whose dome usually reflects the rays of the sun at dusk, the old bullring of La Chata and the Hospital Gómez Ulla skyscraper, better known as the military hospital in Madrid.

The rest of the views are characterized by vegetation from the San Isidro park, the Park of La Cuña, the Moncloa Lighthouse and even the Atractions Park structures. You can’t miss the views of this city!
