Since my friend Adriana told me about el Matadero cultural center, in an old slaughterhouse at one end of Madrid Rio Park, that I wanted to go there. It was also on this day that I learned that I should not cross the city for a walk shorter than the time spent in transports when I am still going to do three flights that day. But it was well worth it!
I went out of the subway at Legazpi station and was immediately amazed by the brick walls and the large water tank. Inside the walls, the allusions to the ancient occupation of that space, the tiles with the inscription “Ganado Lanar”, graffiti of people hungry to eat meat … The whole space is very nice, great for families, with various exhibitions, places to eat, and still with some unoccupied pavilions that also have their grace!
