A Day in Madrid | Photo Journal

Hello everyone! I hope you are all well. Last Friday afternoon I went with Nico and #piñathepoms to two amazing places in Madrid. The Rosaleda Gardens and the Temple of Debod. These places are so beautiful that of course, I took my camera with me to document everything. And with the results, I created a photo journal of that day.

But first, see below the information I found about these places! Just to give you a little background info about them.


The Rosaleda or Rose Garden is a garden used to present and grow various types of garden roses. The roses are displayed grouped by individual variety, color or class in rose beds.
The flowers come from all over the world and it’s a spectacular sight when they are all in bloom (spring and summer). Also, there are neatly groomed pathways and thoughtfully laid out garden; and several fountains.

Every year during the month of May is celebrated as the International Rose Villa New Madrid. A contest to select the most beautiful rose. Gardening enthusiasts will rush to ask to put their best flowers.

This place is, definitely, a must-visit for vacationers and travelers who want to discover beautiful places (especially in spring and summer). Make sure to come to the Rosaleda Gardens during your getaway in Madrid.

This is an Egyptian temple dating back to the 2nd century BC, transported to Madrid’s Cuartel de la Montaña Park. The temple was donated to Spain by the Egyptian government to save it from floods following the construction of the great Aswan Dam.

And just a quick disclaimer before we start the photo journal; you can’t bring dogs into the Rosaleda Gardens. That’s why I didn’t take as many pictures in there. I got inside a little bit to take some photos, while Nico waited with Piña outside. So I didn’t capture all its splendor. But I’ve seen many photos of this place and it’s absolutely breathtaking.

For sure will go back without Piña to take some better photos! Hope you enjoy them anyway!
