The walking tour by Cooltourspain will take you around Lavapies and Embajadores district, although you could also choose the Malasaña graffiti tour or our Madrid bike tour. You’ll explore the professional graffiti decorations that international, national and local artists painted for CALLE Lavapiés, the district’s most famous urban art festival. Once the group visits Calle Argumosa, you’ll then turn right before Reina Sofia Museum towards Calle Doctor Fourquet. This street is full of contemporary art galleries and an urban garden called Esta es una plaza.
After that, your journey will continue towards La Tabacalera, a former XIX century tobacco factory which turned into a self-sustained social & cultural center. The nearest metro station is Embajadores. You’ll find the exterior and interior walls completely decorated. An unfinished urban art museum which is opened to everybody. Next, you’ll walk over Calle Embajadores to end up at Plaza Cascorro.
It takes approximately 2 hours to complete this original & quirky guided visit.
