SAN MARCOS, Calif., Feb. 6, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Golden Door kicked off its 60th year with highlight-reel events as the iconic retreat was named #1 Spa in the World for 2019. At an evening ceremony in London on January 29, Condé Nast Traveller bestowed honors for "Enduring Excellence—a West Coast classic that shines on supremely." Golden Door also hosted a sold-out gala benefit dinner on January 31 for The San Diego Museum of Art that received accolades from those who attended.
The museum's exhibition, which opens May 18, showcases paintings, sculptures and decorative arts produced from about 1550 to 1660 in Spain and such Spanish-controlled areas as Antwerp, Naples, Mexico, Peru and the Philippines. Art and Empire: The Golden Age of Spain is the first exhibition in the United States to expand the notion of "Golden Age" to include the Hispanic world beyond the Iberian Peninsula.
