Searching on the net for the top cultural places in Madrid I found this gem not far from the city center. It is located by Legazpi metro station and opens all year long.
Matadero Madrid offered me the opportunity to interact, create and participate at different workshops. I also participated in a reading corner, a visual arts’ exhibitions, Street art festivals and plays in Spanish and English.
I also read the article about Madrid Rio (check the Madrid Rio article), and noticed they are next to each other. If you are an electronic music lover, as I am, you should not miss out on the Red Bull Music Academy event that takes place once a year at this location.
People from all ages and races come to Matadero Madrid, during the weekends especially, in order to participate in the Big Food, Grrrreat Market or the special designers market (fashion, arts and creativity). I love them, they are incredible events!
