A Host Of Exhibitions And Special Events
Located on the banks of the Manzanares river at the eastern end of Madrid Río, the old slaughterhouse was revamped in 2006 and given a new trendy design. It has now become a modern culture city, hosting a variety of artistic events and exhibitions. It is frequented by locals and tourists alike, but it’s a good idea to check what’s on before you go.
