Spanish Day Celebrations to Paint Galata Red

Lovers of Spanish culture and language gathered in Istanbul’s Galata Square on Saturday for a Spanish-themed day of activities in celebration of the third annual June 18 Spanish Language Day, courtesy of the Cervantes Institute.

The Istanbul Cervantes Institute has prepared an exciting program for Spanish Language Day, kicking off with a morning vocabulary test bright and early at 11 a.m. and continuing to 8 p.m., when the day’s events wraped up with a twilight flamenco dance performance thanks to Istanbul-based Andalusian flamenco dancer Manuel Reina.

Throughout the day’s events, participants had the opportunity to put their language skills to the test, tuck into a vast Spanish breakfast spread, better their skills in Latino dance workshops, watch some breathtaking flamenco performances and bask in the buzz of Latin music all day long.
