One of my ancestors on my mother’s side came to America in 1599 and we are descended from Conquistador Capitan Juan López Holguín de Villasaña, he was born on February 9, 1558, in Extremadura, Spain. My love of Spain comes from my family.
I have traveled extensively to most regions in Spain and I know you will love this years event.
I hope you enjoy and learn as much about Spain as you can, and that you will be inspired to travel there soon and eat and drink your way through this beautiful country.

Noble surnames, such as Lucero, evoke images of the ancient homeland of the Spanish people. The earliest forms of hereditary surnames in Spain were the patronymic surnames, which are derived from the father's given name, and metronymic surnames, which are derived from the mother's given name. Spanish patronymic names emerged as early as the mid-9th century.
The prestigious surname Pacheco originated in Spain, a country which has figured prominently in world affairs for hundreds of years. The name Pacheco became a hereditary surname in Spain after it was brought from Portugal.
This ancient surname dates back to Roman times and in 92 BC, a Roman general named Vivio Pacieco, who descended from Lucio Viminio Pacieco, served Julius Caesar in Andalucía. One of Vivio's descendants, Don Diego López Pacheco, who was also known as "el Grande" and was Ricohombre of Portugal, was the first bearer of this name in Spain.
