We are a group of Dallas citizens committed to carrying the torch for our relationship between Dallas and Valencia, Spain, our Sister City. As you may know, Dallas and Valencia, Spain share a very special relationship.
In 2007, a group of Dallas citizens, led by Janet Kafka, Honorary Consul of Spain and Dr. Elba Garcia, then Mayor Pro Tem of Dallas, traveled to Valencia with Dr. Mark Roglán, Director of the Meadows Museum (representing S.M.U.). In the Calatrava-designed Riena Sofia Palace of the Arts, a cooperation agreement was signed which would become the basis of our relationship with that region.
In 2008, President Francisco Camps, President of the region of Valencia, visited Dallas with a group of Valencian citizens.
In 2010, Mayor Tom Leppert traveled with a group of Dallas citizens to sign our sister city agreement in Valencia.
To support this sister city relationship, a citizens committee was formed in Dallas and another in Valencia.
