Blois, a hillside city on the Loire River, is the capital of the Loir-et-Cher department in central France.

The late-Gothic Blois Cathedral towers over its cobbled center.

Nearby, the Château Royal de Blois is a former royal palace with ornate chambers, and paintings and sculptures from the 16th to 19th centuries. Opposite, La Maison de la Magie Robert-Houdin explores the history of magic and holds live performances.

  • Sunday, October 22: In the morning, sightseeing tour of the city. The city of Toledo keeps inside pieces of several centuries of history, from Romans and Visigoths to the Spanish Empire, passing through Arabs and Hebrews. There are old mosques, synagogues and churches, all steeped in history and art, which can be visited and enjoyed. Several museums are offered to the visitor, full of interesting and beautiful things. The very contemplation of the view of Toledo from the other side of the Tagus River is already a marvel, both at night and during the day, and getting lost in its alleys is another daily pleasure.
There is an exclusive event in Toledo, in the cathedral a mass is celebrated on Sundays for the Mozarabic rite, which is at least curious to witness. And we must not forget the show at Puy du Fou, which can be enjoyed on Friday from 11 in the morning. In summary, the visit of Toledo is something that is worth it.

We are still waiting to confirm if the V Congress of Baraja and Tarot will join us in Toledo, the organizers have not finished deciding.
