(PRESS RELEASE) – Mexico is world renowned for its rich and unique, cultural heritage, music, gastronomy and architecture.
As part of the activities to commemorate the 208th of the beginning of Mexico’s struggle for independence, the Embassy of the United Mexican States to the Eastern Caribbean States, has taken the opportunity to showcase and share some of its cultural wealth with the Saint Lucian public through two special activities.
Today, Thursday the 13th, the Embassy of Mexico, in collaboration with the Embassy of France and Alliance Française, will be hosting a solo opera concert featuring Mr. Alejandro Gil García Marquez, a young baritone from the state of Veracruz, Mexico, currently studying at the Conservatoire de Paris. This event will commence at 7 p.m. at the Alliance Française, Pointe Seraphine, Castries.
The second activity is an art exhibition entitled “Mexico Cities: UNESCO World Heritage” which will be held on weekdays from September 17th to 28th from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Embassy of Mexico in Vigie, Castries. The display will include photographs of historical architectural buildings and picturesque landscapes, from ten cities in Mexico which have been recognized by UNESCO as World Heritage sites. Each of these cities has its own identity and charming atmosphere, which throughout the centuries have never stopped surprising visitors.
This exhibition is a brief example of what makes Mexico the country in the American continent, including the Caribbean, with the most UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
The general public is invited to attend both activities, which are excellent opportunities to experience and acquire greater knowledge on aspects of Mexico’s rich and diverse culture.
