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...

Stumbled across this whilst walking along the Madrid Rio, and at the time of our visit the place was pretty well deserted, and devoid of any activity apart from a restaurant preparing to open for business. Perhaps we were just too early. Although the facade of the buildings look impressive and newly cleaned, once you peer through the hessian covered... More

We visit Madrid regularly and enjoy a walk along the river and through the parks, especially on a Sunday. We walked farther than we usually would and spotted the Matadero in the distance. It looked interesting so went for a closer inspection and were surprised to find a large produce market in full swing. Inside the buildings were restaurants and... More
