What a popular place! The old city's slaughterhouse reconstructed for a public use. Families, friends, nice art installations, good films, food markets, vintage/antique markets, concerts... Everything is interesting there. Check the calendar and make a gap in your agenda to go there. There's also a permanent nice place to eat: Sagas. Don't miss the opportunity.

We visited Matadero on a Saturday afternoon expecting an artistic buzz, but sadly we found an enormous -almost desert- open space with lots of beautifully renovated buildings (it used to be the Madrid's meat market). They have many attractions and activities for parents with small children, storytelling, an indoor plaza with modern playground (kind of dark anyway). We found just... More

If you are a culture lover this is a place you have to visit in Madrid. It is full with workshops, theatre plays, movies, poetry, music... depending on the week and the part you are visiting. Really cool atmosphere.

A very relaxing atmosphere where people come to walk their pet, do some in-line skating or learn how to cycle. An alternative atmosphere with plenty of art and theater going on.

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
