  • Lovely historical place to visit. It is nice to take some pictures and spend time as there is a lovely park next to it. People play music and sell some souvenirs. I can totally recommend it. I went there two times during my holidays as I enjoyed it. Also the view from there is gorgeous. You can see over Madrid.
  • It's a one of the best spots for a panoramic view of the palace grounds in Madrid. There are a few steps to climb until you reach the temple and you can only see the relics of Egyptian temple from outside. The lawns around are a good place to lay down and read a book or just relax. Bring a picnic mat though. People selling beer will bother you every now and then. But apart from that, it's a great place for a relaxing evening
