The Templo de Debod is one of the few complete architectonic structures located outside Egypt and the only one in Spain.

At the request of Egypt and Sudan, UNESCO made an international appeal for help to save the temples and monuments that were in danger. In 1968 Spain received the Templo de Depod in gratitude for its help in saving the temple of Abu Simbel.

This temple was located in the south of Egypt, in the Lower Nubia, very close to the first cataract and to the religious center dedicated to the Goddess Isis, on the Philae Island. Construction of the Temple was started by Adikhalamani, King of Meroe, at the beginning of the 2nd Century BC. This chapel, decorated with reliefs, is one of the few monuments that makes reference to this monarch.
