About the Event

This is the famous story of the Coronado Expedition in 1540, the earliest Spanish entry up into Arizona and New Mexico, that made not only Coronado, but also Cabeza de Vaca, Estabanico, and Marcos de Niza famous.  It is a story of the Spanish search for gold, for the Seven Cities of Cibola, Las Siete Ciudades de Oro (the Seven Cities of Gold), and of Cabeza de Vaca’s eight-year journey.
