Lavapiés, the golden mile for urban renovation and contemporary art
Multicultural, racial, and for brief moments of its history dangerous and almost impossible to walk through, today a laboratory for new trends, Lavapiés has never been unnoticed. From Caixaforum to Medialab Prado, From “la Casa Encendida” to Tabacalera, some yards are packed with old industrial buildings that have come to life, breathed into by the last contemporary creations and permeated by the influence of the neighborhood giant: The “Reina Sofia” Museum. We will walk these places to discover a world of art galleries and urban spaces recovered from speculation and decadency.
