An Egyptian Temple Overlooking Madrid

Perched high on a hill in Parque del Oeste is a true Egyptian temple given to Spain as the Aswan High Damn was about to swallow it up. Now it sits in a perfect park overlooking the hills of Madrid and the Royal Palace. Go at night when it and the Palace are both lit up. Now I understand why my Spanish class spent so much time learning to pronounce "eee-hip-sho"...

Also, there's a chairlift contraption that takes you further into the parque, which is 2-3 times the size of Madrid itself and is right there.
