At La Casa de La Lectura, Miguel Panadero will show you his artworks. On the ground floor of the Palacio Quintanar, wonderful photographs by the Brazilian photojournalist Ricardo Teles are on display as part of Enchanted. Upstairs at the palace, photographers Harald Hauswald, Tomasz Tomaszewski and historian Petr Blažek will guide you through their photographs.

At the Colegio de Arquitectos of Segovia, you will have the opportunity to talk with the president Susana Moreno who will present the collective Danish exhibition Architecture for people. At the Torreón de Lozoya, artist Eduardo Arroyo will show his wonderful exhibition Tryptych: Art, Literature and Theatre.
