Things to do for free in Madrid

I can’t believe I haven’t come across this website before today. MadridFree is a daily updated site featuring the latest exhibitions, concerts, special events and other cool and interesting stuff that you can do in the city FOR FREE. The site has an English section too, although it’s clear that most of the articles have just been put through a translator program.

Each event is illustrated with a photo and there is a categorised list for easy navigation to the event type of your choice. You can also subscribe and get the latest events auto-fwded to your inbox / twitter / facebook account etc.

This site is going in my sidebar. Muy bueno!


Juan Ripollés Exhibition

Retiro Park in central Madrid has been hosting an exhibition (Universo Urbano) by the sculptor Juan Ripollés. If you want to see more of these unusual and beautiful sculptures I recommend this great photo gallery on Flickr by Colgantitos.

The Star Wars Exhibition has come to Madrid and here is a photo of the star as he is billed on the outside of the building housing the show.

The exhibition will be running until March 15th (7 days a week) and can be found at Canal de Isabel II located next to Plaza de Castilla. Most interesting to me is the ‘Jedi School’ – which sounds pretty funky, I need some pointers on sword control. Maybe this guy is the teacher, although Yoda would be better.
