After two days of intense diplomatic activity, yesterday Prince Felipe and Princess Letizia had time to make cultural and charity visits and also met with others royals.

They went to the National Museum of Bucharest where they visited an important medieval Exhibition. Afterwards they visited Centro San Marcelino Champanat of Los Hermanos Maristas, a center in Bucharest that developed a program to help children and youth.

San Marcelino Champanat was a French priest who founded the Hermanos Maristas  in 1817. They are a religious order consecrated to God, whose motto is “follow Jesus in the Way that Mary did”. Maristics Brothers live in the community and are dedicated in a special way to the education of children and youth, specially the most neglected ones.

Maristics Brothers settled in Romania in 1998 and in 2004 they opened their first charity house with the aim of taking children from the streets and helping with their education. Currently 4300 Maristics Brothers work worldwide.

At the end of their visit to San Marcelino Center, Felipe and Letizia had a private meeting with Prince Radu and Princess Margarita of Romania at Elisabeta Palace.
