For instance, led walks with the 100 most critical structures in Madrid guides through the best experts. The general public transport is going to be free throughout now.

It’s important cultural reference points like the Prado’s Museum, the Slaughterhouse, the Conde Duque Cultural Center, the Carlos Amberes Fundation, 20 galleries and almost 100 structures having a special architectural interest. Each one of these provide a wide sample of visual and performing arts that demonstrate architecture as though it were another kind of art. Prior to the event begins, children in Madrid’s Plaza Vázquez de Mella were asked on Thursday to color their very own small-houses.

The present edition includes activities for example lectures, exhibitions, competitions, movies and documentaries projections, concerts, dance and theatre spectacles, and guide itineraries, both by walking or by bicycle.
