Visited this place from the outside in December as its not the bull fight season. From the outside you feel the royalty and the authenticity of the place. Wish we had the chance to assist to any show and experience the thrill Anyways, its a must visit attraction even from the outside

If u live in Madrid or ur a tourist in Madrid avoid all restaurants in this location. The food is so basic that they try to make a hotdog sound fancy

The complex of building being a site of a city's main slaughterhouse in mid-20th century, is beautifully designed as an art and leasure house.

Came here for a photoshoot, introduced by local friends. My partner and I are absolutely impressed by how this old abattoir has been transformed into an arts centre for a multitude of activities such as theater, exhibitions, workshops and craft markets.

Matadero, the old slaughter house by the river, near metro Legazpi, now a fabulous cultural, art and design center. A huge complex with several low buildings (from beginning of 20thC) to showcase exhibits, theatre, film, installations, workshops, and a vast outdoor area (with art and sport performances) well worth visiting. There is also a large open space with bars and... More

In the corner you can take a beer cane at the end of your tour. 100% recommended for artists, designers, and lovers of good spaces of artistic... More

The 'Matadero' built in 1924, with many alterations over the years, was revamped after being closed for years in 2006 and is now a Contemporary Art Centre. The centre offers exhibitions, rooms for events, cafeteria among other attractions. It is interesting to see if there is something being shown that is of your interest. Otherwise probably not worth going to... More
