Mamacita's proudly represents the architectural style of three great cultures: Persian, Spanish, and Mexican. In the 7th century Arabian horseman invaded north Africa and western Europe by way of Morocco, then becoming knowing as the "Moors". The Moors ruled parts of northern Europe and Spain for 800 years until, in 1492, Spanish King Ferdinand and his queen Isabella came to power. The Moors left a rich and decorative cultural legacy that influenced Spanish art and architecture.
As Christopher Columbus, Cotes, La Salle, and other later explorers journeyed to the Americas that decorative mix of Spanish, Moorish, and Christian influence made a stronghold in the new lands.
Today, throughout cities such as Guadalajara, San Miguel de Allende, St. Augustine, and especially the city of San Antonio, that gentle blend of architecture, culture and artistic creativity are visible.
We hope you enjoy your dining experience at Mamacita's and that you will also enjoy, in a small way, architectural tradition that is more than 1500 years old!
