The funeral of Dr. Alfonso “Chico” Chiscano was held Friday at the San Fernando Cathedral.
Dr. Alfonso Chiscano, a surgeon and advocate for Canary Islanders in San Antonio, died Tuesday at age 81.
Bexar County Commissioners unanimously approved a $337,500 payment to the Canary Islands Descendants Association Tuesday towards the fabrication of five bronze sculptures.
Were it not for the passion for a better life that drove these “earliest civilian colonists of San Antonio,” our beloved city would not be what it is today.
If the effort reaches fruition, it will be the first monument in San Antonio dedicated to the city’s Canary Island history.
