13 to 15 March 2020 – Madrid, Spain

Segundo congreso internacional de Baraja y Tarot.

Un congreso de baraja y tarot, donde la historia y el misterio están tan unidos no estaría completa sin un museo donde descubrir parte de la historia, muchas actividades donde poder experimentar por uno mismo ese misterio, algunas online, y talleres particulares y muy exclusivos.

También podrás visitar de forma gratuita la Exposición de Barajas y Tarots que abarcará desde Siglo XVI a nuestro tiempo, además de libros de la temática. Este año se dedicará a México, aunque tendremos Tarots del mundo, libros peculiares como los dos originales de Etteilla o curiosidades como dos grabados originales del Tarot de Mantegna realizados por Ladenspelder y el libro y barajas del primer Tarólogo español.

Hotel Vincci Soma, Goya 79, Madrid, Spain.

2nd congress of playing cards and tarots, with many activities, conferences, round tables, performances, exclusive workshops and presentations.
