The exhibition space of La Tabacalera is amazing. This former tabacco factory has been converted into an exhibition space as well as workshop space for artists.

A friend introduced me to this place and I really liked it. If you like street art this is the perfect place to visit. There were no specific events going on but just walking through the building was already really nice.

We were told that we could find an almost underground art gathering and we were not disappointing.The place is full of amazing graffities..At the time we visited there was a spooky anti-capitalism,anti-polution exposition which was overwhelming..

This former tobacco processing plant houses temporary exhibitions - recently of photographers´work - in an industrial surrounding. In the same building is a cultural centre where a second hand market takes place once a month (Rave market). Worth checking out.

Walking into this neighbourhood is like entering a
different country ... except it's hard to tell which
one it is. One side of Calle Lavapiés is lined with
Indian restaurants, the other with kebab shops. Men in
traditional African clothing convene outside their
businesses for long chats, and people shout to each
other across plazas and streets. Interspersed among
ethnic specialty shops are independent theaters and
