This new cultural centre run by Madrid City Council aims to become a meeting point for cultural agents and professionals and a leading venue in the city, within the context of the Paseo del Arte - Art Walk and the Barrio de las Letras, where it is located. Its facilities make it the perfect venue to showcase Madrid's creative dynamism around art, music, design, literature, image and gastro-culture.
The unique industrial building in which this venue is housed, built in the early 20th Century, was once the premises of the Serrería Belga sawmill. An important example of industrial construction and one of the exceptional properties that make up Madrid’s Landscape of Light, named a World Heritage Site by UNESCO on 25 July 2021.
Following the complete renovation of the building, this area of nearly 4000 m2 will be dedicated to offering a broad cultural offer, with a whole floor covering more than 300 m2 for artistic exhibitions and a large area dedicated to poetry, literature, and the role of Madrid as literary capital throughout the centuries.
All activities at the Serrería Belga Cultural Centre are free, although tickets must be booked in advance through its official website www.serreria-belga.es or at https://tienda.madrid-destino.com/es.
