Today I will comment on something that is very accessible here in Madrid. I am talking about the Caixa Forum. It is a temporary exhibition center that was inaugurated in 2008.
In addition to this center, La Caixa owns other similar centers throughout Spain. For example, Caixa Forum Barcelona, Caixa Forum Sevilla, Caixa Forum Girona among others.
The building in Madrid is on the Paseo del Prado, right in front of the Botanical Garden and very close to the Prado Museum.
As an exhibition center, it is very interesting because there are exhibitions of modern and contemporary art but there are also exhibitions with old works. Sometimes, these exhibitions are free.
Depending on the time of year, we can attend some music festivals and also poetry there.
Caixa Forum also has spaces for current affairs debates as it has an auditorium with more than 300 seats and several rooms for conferences and other activities. The center includes a cafeteria, a bookstore and a restaurant.
There are always several activities at a time. Culture is breathed into this environment. It is a very interesting option for all ages and the visit is well worth.
I leave here the address and telephone of the center
