Why locals love it

This flourishing art center, located in the old central slaughterhouse of Madrid, offers a huge public open space for all cultural forms of expression and dialogue between the arts. Some of the most creative spots can be found here, as well as trendy events and popular concerts and exhibitions.

Why you should visit it

Great concerts and festivals, open air spaces and trendy bars, astonishing theatre plays, amazing exhibitions, excellent cinema programs, vibrant design and music centers...all this and more in a huge space that gathers a dozen buildings serving as a good example of Madrid's new architecture dealing with recycled and pre-existing elements.

Many locals spend long weekend afternoons here and in nearby Madrid Rio, and you will probably do so too!
