About the Relationship:
The proposal to form a sister city relationship between Houston and Huelva originated with a small group of Spanish businessmen in 1969, the year that man first landed on the moon. Houston and Huelva have many things in common, not the least of which being that both have served as gateways to new frontiers. NASA’s location in Houston helped mankind expand its exploration of outer space, while Huelva served as the departure point for Christopher Columbus’ first voyage to the “New World”.
Huelva is Houston’s only sister city in Spain, and the Houston-Huelva Sister City Association welcomes the promotion and cultural exchange that this entails, not only for Huelva and Andalucía, but for every part of Spain.
The Houston-Huelva Sister City Association promotes ties to Spain and hosts cultural programs throughout the year. Please contact the Houston International Protocol Alliance at 713-227-3395 for more information about the association’s upcoming activities and how to become involved.
