The monarchs' stop in D.C. will cap off their busy five days across the pond. During their trip, taking place from June 14 to June 19, Letizia and Felipe will visit New Orleans and San Antonio, two cities that celebrate the three hundred years of their respective foundations this year, and that hold important historical testimony of the deep and close ties that unite Spain and the United States.
While in Texas, Their Majesties will be on hand to commemorate the city’s Spanish roots as well as to inaugurate two major art exhibitions, Designing America: Spain’s Imprint in the U.S. and Spain: 500 Years of Spanish Painting from the Museums of Madrid as part of San Antonio’s Tricentennial. The trip down south will mark the royals’ first-ever visit to San Antonio.
“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,” Mayor Ron Nirenberg said in a statement.
The royal couple will also get the chance to dine on delicacies at the popular historic Pearl brewery prepared by local chefs during an official dinner that will showcase San Antonio’s UNESCO Creative City of Gastronomy Designation.
