The origin of playing cards
Set in a 16th-century building, Bendaña Palace, this is the world's most important museum of playing cards.
The museum dates back to Don Heraclio Fournier, who founded an important printing press in Vitoria in 1868. Here, various collections show visitors the evolution of playing cards through history, in different countries, both in terms of manufacture and content/design. You can see all kinds of cards (old, bullfighting-related, satirical, parapsychological...), with special emphasis placed on the Spanish deck.
