Spanish Royalty in the Alamo City

Written by on June 15, 2018

King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia are going to visit San Antonio from June 16th to the 18th. They are going to celebrate our Tricentennial by helping to introduce two art exhibits: “Designing America: Spain’s Imprint in the United States” and “Spain: 500 Years of Spanish Painting From the Museums of Madrid”. According to the Los Angeles Times, the latter exhibit displays art never shown in the U.S., and it will include pieces from artists such as El Greco, Velázquez and Goya. The exhibits will be displayed in the San Antonio Museum of Art.

The King and Queen will also tour several historical sites and missions which reflect a historical connection with Spain. The San Antonio Express News reports that some of the stops will include The Spanish Governor’s Palace, and Mission San Jose, the latter a UNESCO World Heritage Site including several missions, as well as The Alamo.

The San Antonio Express News also reports that there will also be an official dinner for the royals, with food from some of our city’s most notable chefs: Johnny Hernandez, from La Gloria, among others; Elizabeth Johnson, from Pharm Table; and Steven McHugh from Cured.

The King and Queen will visit the White House following their visit to San Antonio, according to the Express News.

Mayor Nirenberg expressed excitement about the visit, saying that “San Antonio is proud to commemorate the special bonds that tie us to Spain. We welcome Their Majesties to visit San Antonio during our Tricentennial year to collaborate and build a stronger foundation now and in the future.  The everlasting impact of Spain’s culture is woven into the fabric of San Antonio’s legacy for generations to come.”

    Howdy would you mind stating which blog platform you’re
    working with? I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m having
    a hard time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs
    and I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

    Its like you read my mind! You appear to know a lot about this,
    like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you can do with a few pics to drive the message home a bit, but instead of that, this is great blog.
    A fantastic read. I will definitely be back.

    I do trust all of the ideas you have offered to your post.
    They’re really convincing and will definitely work.
    Still, the posts are too brief for newbies. May you please extend
    them a little from subsequent time? Thanks for the post.
