A vast soulless place in its time, I bet. Large enough to have housed thousands of workers. Perhaps in the heat of summer the windowless rooms would have been cool rather than cold.

If you have set out on Madrid for art, then make sure not to miss this place. An old tobacco factory, now operating as the most imposing art space in the city! Was lucky enough to see two great exhibitions; "Flowers. Pedro Almodóvar and Jorge Galindo" and "Canciones para una revolución". Even its exterior is covered with art! Really thankful I had a chance to visit!

Fun place to explore and check out some amazing graffiti and contemporary art. The hours don't always match what it says on the website, so it's good to check ahead. I went on a Sunday night and there was a DJ, a band, and some people playing guitar outside--lots going on, and it definitely isn't touristy.

An excellent exhibition space. This repurposed industrial factory, with its various nooks and crannies, is an ideal place for displaying a multitude of exhibition pieces. I was pleased that the shows by Francisco Leiro and Mont/Mora were featured when attended.

The Tabacalera cultural center was the great surprise of our visit to Madrid. My wife and I thought the place might be an interesting contrast to the world-class traditional art galleries of the city, but we didn't expect to be completely fascinated by the exhibition of Francisco Leiro's sculptures, a show that still has a month to run as I write this review. And admission was free! Drop by to see what is in the principal gallery and what other projects are available to view in this place of diverse artistic activity. The building itself, an old tobacco factory, is an unusual, remarkable venue: it's off the beaten tourist path, in Lavapies, and all the more interesting for that.
