Historic Jamestowne and La Tienda are sponsoring a joint walking tour and wine reception on Thursday, June 20.
At “Jamestown — The Spanish Story Revealed,” participants will take a walking tour of the James Fort site and learn how the Spanish shaped the English settlement at Jamestown. The event will conclude at La Tienda’s retail store for a tasting of Spanish tapas and wines.
Spanish explorers sailed into the Chesapeake Bay in 1561 and returned in 1570 to found a Jesuit mission. After the English built Jamestown in the early 1600s, they prepared for a possible Spanish attack.
The walking tour will begin at 4:45 p.m. on Jamestown Island. Cost is $45. Space is limited and reservations are required.
