Matadero is one of several fantastic Madrilenean cultural centres that offers high quality exhibitions, archives, and other cultural events at little or no charge.

I went without much expectation and was very pleased with the experience at the place. Some art shows, food and an entertaining experience for the family.

I guess I should have googled activities before going. After a very long walk in Madrid Rio, here was absolutely nothing at the Matadero. Nothing to eat, nothing to drink. Nothing.

The old slaughter house with a typical industrial arquitecture was transformed into a cultutal and social center in a very clever way. Has a movie theater, restaurant, theater hall, library an indoors playground. You can walk to the river with outdoors playgrounds and bridges.
