Wine please! And cheers and let's learn how to play this game (typical at university and local taverns), the spaniards call it "La Pocha", but also depending on your tastes we can do a mixture of different games.

Madrid still preserves that "tradition" of simple things of the everyday life, like card games playing. And this is the purpose of this tour, as we walk immersed in the history and anecdotal stories of the city from place to place, we will be discovering those hidden corners of Madrid where to taste its different smells and flavors. Wine please! And cheers and let's learn how to play this game (typical at university and local taverns), the spaniards call it "La Pocha".

The tricky part will be for non-spaniards the use of Spanish Deck Card Game. Kings, horses, sotas, and rest of numbers on a quest for every player to build the best strategy, never forgetting the instincts we keep inside.
