This is definetly a nice place to go in Madrid when you visit Madrid Rio. The history behind the Matadero , the atmosphere of urban revitalization and the attractions are recommended.

Given the budgetary problems Madrid is currently having and the fact that Matadero Madrid is so new, It is hard to see quite yet what its legacy will be in a city with abundant and prestigious fine arts

Love thisnplace: you can go to a organic food market, to a contemporary theater, or to a documentary cinema, or see the design exhibiton.

The show was excellent although do... More

This area used to be a slaughterhouse and I love how it has changed into an awesome cinema, a theatre, as well as holds design functions such as El Mercado Central de Diseño.
