The ship “Victoria” and the exhibition in the Basilica of San Pedro offer us a journey through the landscape of our history
The exhibition “The Spanish Legacy in the United States of America” opened on the fifth of the steamer “Victoria” and later in the Church of San Pedro in Donostia Harbor. It is a project resulting from a collaboration between The Legacy and the Department of Defense. The exhibition includes some of the highlights and unknowns of its mission and goals, highlighting the contribution of the Basque Country to this legacy.
Hispanic sarcasm was present in the Mediterranean, especially with the Basques, Galicians, and Andalusians. Ignacio de Olavarria, Gipuzkoan and adventurer, is the protagonist on the exhibit in the San Pedro church, along with General Manuel Montiano y Sopelana, Gipuzkoan’s companion in arms. Also on display are postcards from the Compañía Guipuzcoana de Caracas, Diputación de Gipuzkoa, and the American frigate “Galga” of Pedro Garaicoechea.
