Audrey1. Templo de Debod y Parque del Oeste

En Madrid, tenemos un templo egipcio, cerca de Gran Vía y de Plaza de España: el Templo de Debod. Está ubicado en un parque muy bonito, el Parque del Oeste, que ofrece también un buen punto de vista del Palacio Real. ¡Un lugar para andar o disfrutar del día leyendo un buen libro a la sombra de los árboles!

Temple de Debod et Parque del Oeste
Il s’agit d’un temple de l’Egypte antique ouvert au public qui se trouve à Madrid, non loin de la grande rue commerçante, Gran Vía et de la Plaza de España. Il est situé dans un parc très sympathique, el Parque del Oeste, qui offre également une belle vue sur le Palais Royal et également sur une partie de la ville. Un très bon endroit pour se promener ou se détendre sur l’herbe accompagné d’un bon livre !

Temple of Debod
This is an Egyptian temple in the middle of el Parque del Oeste and really close to Gran Vía, the avenue in which you can find most of the shops and the famous Plaza de España. The park also offers a great view of the Royal Palace and it´s a great place to go for a walk or just chill on the grass reading a good book under the trees’ shade. So if you just want to enjoy Spanish weather just go there and relax.
