The Annual Meeting will take place at the only UAM building located in the city’s historic core of Madrid, The Corrala , in Carlos Arniches street, within the famous Rastro of Madrid. The Corrala is a traditional and popular building of the nineteenth- century. The Corralas received and gave shelter to many families who moved from the villages to the capital of Spain, searching for a better life. Most of these corralas were built near city factories.
The Corrala was built around 1860. It has a ground floor which originally served as a trading area and where horse carts stopped. Private homes and Inns were located on the first floor and the attic area. The building was restored by the city hall and ceded to the UAM, which moved to this location its Museum of Arts and Popular Traditions .
Coffee and lunch will be provided by a sustainable catering cooperative “Subiendo al Sur”. More info (only Spanish)
