Talk about edgy—this city-run contemporary arts center is located in a former slaughterhouse. It functions as a combination think tank and incubator for the arts and has a number of different spaces where artists can unleash their creativity through interactive exhibits, theater, performance art, and exhibitions of large-scale visual art. Overall, the space is so large that it can accommodate just about any artistic idea, no matter how avant-garde, and half the fun of visiting is that you don’t really know quite what to expect. The Cineteca is devoted exclusively to non-fiction film and video. Free guided tours of the facility in Spanish or English are available by advance reservation.
