Excellent way to re-use a old building as cultural center.

I was surprised how well thought this place being used as exhibition spot, library, leisure space and so and so on. Congratulation Madrid.

Having walked to the river from Puerta Del Sol we were hoping to find somewhere for coffee and a cake (it was about lunchtime). All we could find that was open was a "bar" with loud jazz music and a bit of sushi (despite a menu showing coffees, sandwiches & rolls at an exhorbitant price - 3 times that elsewhere)... More

Love thisnplace: you can go to a organic food market, to a contemporary theater, or to a documentary cinema, or see the design exhibiton. Many plans - mainly during the weekends, when it gets too croedy when the weather is good. They should organize there more music festivals, cause the venue is great.

Only viewed from a tour bus but a real "wow" factor - it is on the extended Route 2 on the red buses

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.

This place is big with lots of old buildings all perfectly restored to a state where it is a bit unreal. This was the ald Madrid slaughter house and nos houses Exhibitions, restaurants and - while we were there - a food fair. Definitely not your classic tourist attraction but more an attraction for the people of Madrid and as... More

Huge space (indoor and outdoor) where performances, exhibits, conferences, natural produces markets, etc. take place. If it's too hot don't go. In nay case, check the programme

We visited the 'Big Food' exhibition where restaurants/ caterers were given a chance to highlight their creative 'tapas'. After queueing for 10 minutes to get in, it was enjoyed by the whole family. Interesting installations, too

A place to explore and review vary carefully. Talking about the history of this place, it was heavily criticized. Do not forget that also Eiffel Tower was. But, who can go to Paris and skip this visit. Back to "Matadero", we have to be fair, and think about the transformation of this place. Despite all these comments, try doing a... More
