Hispanic Heritage Month
September 15 is the beginning of Hispanic Heritage Month in the United States. Hispanic culture developed from the blending of local customs with new traditions brought by the Spanish explorers and conquistadors who arrived in the Americas beginning in the 1400s. Through the links below we invite you to explore a sampling of Britannica’s coverage of the people, places, and traditions that have shaped—and continue to shape—the vibrant Hispanic culture that thrives today.
