General Meetings

GM Collage 2015Each month, September through June, INC organizes gatherings for our membership. We strive to take you to unique places that perhaps you didn’t know about or wouldn’t have access to on your own. Or maybe we’re just taking you somewhere you’d prefer to visit with a group. Either way we try to introduce INC members to the cultural life here in Madrid.

If you have a venue or topic you would like to suggest, please contact our General Meetings team at

Next Event: General Meeting April – Royal Tapestry Factory

April 20, 2017 from 11:00 am to 1:30 pm

The Royal Tapestry Factory is an institution founded in 1720 and devoted to the handmade production of tapestries,rugs and wallrugs.
Tapestries and rugs from this place can be seen in every palace of the Spanish crown,as well as in other national and international institutions.
King Felipe V decide to found this factory in order to make Spanish palaces more comfortable. Many artists started to paint cardboard and drafts for their tapestries. Tapestries made by Goya can be admired in several museums.
Today, the factory continues with handmade production as well as training new craftsmen. It also works as a foundation that preserves documentation of the historical legacy, looks after Spanish historical heritage and restores rugs and tapestry.
