The Bullard Ritmo Latino Spanish club had recently went on a trip on April 19th to Hearst Castle in San Simeon, CA to discover the architecture mimicking Spain’s style.

In this trip, Spanish teachers Rosa Gamez and Roy Verduzco, along with Spanish club members and students in AP Spanish, toured around the castle. They got the chance to compare the castle to some of the most popular buildings in Spain.

This trip was dedicated to the students taking AP Spanish Language, as it can help them learn extra information for the AP exam on May 2nd. The information gained from this can be used for a compare and contrast with architecture in the USA and any Spanish speaking country. The mansion was built between 1919-1947 as a residence for William Randolph Hearst. Hearst had originally named this castle “La Cuesta Encantada” (The Enchanted Hill), but it was later changed to its current name in remembrance of Hearst.

Many students I have spoken to have said that they enjoyed the art that represented many different cultures, and they were fascinated by it all. Alynez Zuniga (Junior) had an amazing experience at the field trip as an AP Spanish student. When asked what her favorite part of the trip was, she answered, “It was actually getting inside the castle and getting to see the indoor pool the castle had because of all the different types of art it had from many different cultures.”

Jose Lustre (Sophomore), is also an AP Spanish lang student that went on the trip. He said, “My favorite part about visiting the castle was to learn the information about the castle and to explore new things in life. It was also worth the trip for me because you learn about the different styles of architecture of that culture.” There were multiple different styles such as Gothic, Romanesque, Baroque, etc., involved in the design of the Hearst castle.

If you ever choose to take any type of Spanish course or participate in the Ritmo Latino Spanish club, it is highly recommended by all of the members to get involved in all sorts of fun educational learning.
