Only way you will be disappointed is if whats on is not to your taste. Worth the trip to get to it which can be a beautiful walk along the park beside it from miles away.

This amazing place holds some of the most exciting events of the alternative (and consolidated) theatre plays, art exhibitions and gastronomic options. Have a look at the program, truly at the level of the Fringe in Edinburgh (though not for free yet) and gather around the fantastic terrace for a refreshing beer before or after the play. It will surprise... More

Matadero Madrid is a place to gather up to discuss arts, literature, cinema, sports, music concerts and cultural events, very trendy place nowadays, very contemporary where creativity is priority number one. There are also cultural events from other countries, specially Latin America. The residence is used by foreign artists or even Spanish youngsters coming from other Spanish cities (El Ranchito)....

Matadero was one of the favourite parts of my trip to Madrid. Exhibitions were so much fun and original and overall the whole place had amazing genius loci. It's just shame that not every hall is fully used and opened to public but I think it's just a matter of time until the whole space will be completed. If I... More

My family stayed in Madrid for 3 weeks this visit, our longest time yet. I loved being able to go to the Matadero twice. A coverted slaughterhouse, this cultural center is the model of what every similar venue ought to be--- aesthetically pleasing, smart, well-balanced, and multi-faceted. Too many segments to list. The Casa del Lector was pleasing to the... More

The Matadero was Madrid's former slaughterhouse. It has now been renovated into an art exhibition center. It was set up to help reflect on the contemporary sociocultural environment and support processes to build the culture of today and tomorrow. I like the atmosphere of this place. It is located closed to the Legazpi metro station.

We had been told to come here but I wish we had looked online to know when there would be an exhibition we might like to see. As it was, we simply had coffee there and wandered around enjoying the architecture and stumbling on one art installation which was not that great. Just behind the building where we had coffee...
