Matadero Madrid is a former slaughterhouse in the Arganzuela district of Madrid, which has been converted to an arts centre. Matadero Madrid is a lively, constantly changing space at the service of creative processes, participatory artistic training and dialogue between the arts. It was set up to help reflect on the contemporary sociocultural environment and support processes to build the culture of today and tomorrow. A lab for experimentation and promoting new cross-disciplinary formulae. This complex also served as the inspiration for the 1999 film, Chicken Run.

  • Matadero in Madrid is a popular destination just outside of the city centre, still inside the 'almond' area formed by the ringroad. You can get there easily by bus or metro. I visited on a January day, without any specific purpose, it is a huge area of refurbished meat market bays and lovely buildings, transformed into offices, storage and workshop areas. It is used a lot for events, too. Check their website for updates.
  • Great place with interesting activities going on. Either open air or Indoor, there are organised theatre plays, cinema, exhibitions and concerts every now and then. There are also places to eat and a place to rent bikes. Wonderful atmosphere
