La Casa Encendida is a social and cultural centre in central Madrid (on the Ronda de Valencia where it is met by Calle Valencia). It began operations in December 2002.


It belongs to the Fundación Montemadrid (the formal title of which is Fundación Obra Social y Monte de Piedad de Madrid), a social responsibility entity set up by the Spanish bank Caja Madrid.


Among its activities are avant-garde art exhibitions, and running courses and workshops on social matters, culture and the environment. The cultural programme includes performance art, film, exhibitions and other forms of contemporary creativity. It developed as a place which particularly supports young artists.


The name La Casa Encendida ('The Burning House' in English) is taken from the eponymous book of the poet Luis Rosales Camacho, whose heirs gave their permission for its use.

  • OK to visit if you like modern art. Not very nice since there’s no explanation in English. Huge gallery.  more »
  • Nice Gus Van Sant exhibition, it's not so popular as other museums so it didn't have a lot of people, we could quietly see the exhibition.  more »

  • It is a really nice place for students and they have a nice coffeeshop there
  • Interesting exhibitions. Unfortunately the roof terrace was closed for works.
