Egyptian Temple in Madrid

Temple of Debod - M9, 35 Summilux, ~f/8, 1s, ISO 160
I was surprised to discover that there is an Egyptian temple in Madrid.  The Temple of Debod was originally built in southern Egypt.  In the 1960s, as a sign of gratitude to Spain for help in saving the temples of Abu Simbel, Egypt donated this temple to Spain.
