Spanish Quarter 1763-1800

 

Feb 10 marks the anniversary of the Spanish takeover of the colony until 1803. This led to Spanish style architecture in the “French” Quarter, since the two great fires (1788 and 1794) happened during their regime. As a descendant of Portuguese settlers (via the Canary Islands) to southern Louisiana, I represent that history.
