The Templo de Debod once stood in the Nile Valley of Egypt, 31km (19 miles) from Aswan. It dates from the 4th century BC and was dedicated to the god Amon and the goddess Isis.

When the new Aswan Dam threatened the temple, the Egyptian government decided to give it to Spain in gratitude for its help in saving Abu Simbel.

The temple was dismantled stone by stone in 1969-70. It was then put on a ship to Valencia and a train to Madrid. There it was reconstructed and opened to the public in 1971.
