On March 26, 2015, the Santa Barbara Trust for Historic Preservation unveiled a plaque on the Presidio Northwest Corner defense wall commemorating the 1995 visit by Prince Felipe of Spain to Santa Barbara. The plaque is also the first of several which together will serve as the donor acknowledgement wall for El Presidio de Santa Bárbara State Historic Park. Spanish Consul General Javier Francisco Vallaure and Mayor Helen Schneider were among the dignitaries present at the unveiling.
