PALENCIA, CASTILLA Y LEON – For the first time since its inaugural celebration in Baler, Aurora in 2003, the Philippines-Spanish Friendship Day was commemorated in this province of Castilla on Friday, June 30. This was made possible through the efforts of Jesus Valbuena, a grandson of Corporal Jesus Garcia Quijano, one of the 33 Spanish soldiers who survived the siege of Baler.
