'Camino Real de los Tejas: Past & Present'

'Camino Real de los Tejas: Past & Present'

The exhibition and seminar seek to increase public awareness of a long important period in the history of Texas — the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries, when Spain and later Mexico were intertwined with the Lone Star State.

The Consulate General of Spain in Houston is proud to announce the opening of the exhibition El Camino Real de los Tejas: Past & Present, which will run from June 16 through July 3 at Duncan Hall on the Rice University campus.

The exhibit, consisting of panels with old maps and engraving reproductions, photographs and other historical domuments, will be shown in Duncan Hall, with a Seminar scheduled on June 17 from 9.00 am to 1.30 pm.

"El Camino Real de los Tejas" ("The Royal Road of Texas") is a historic landmark that dates from 1680 to 1845 and spans Spanish, Mexican and early American history. It was designated as a national Historic Trail in 2004 by the U.S. Congress, thus joining another 10 historic trails in the country.

The exhibition portrays the essential facts and history of the "El Camino Real de los Tejas" across cities and lands, and hopefully will contribute in making the public aware of the history and richness of the Texan lands.
