Anniversary of the Academia General Militar

On February 20, 1882, King Alfonso XII signed the founding decree of the Academia General Militar, then located in Toledo.

Among the activities commemorating the anniversary of the creation of the Academia General Militar, the military parade stands out as a central act that takes place on February 20 in the Parade Ground of the Academy.

This act is a true exaltation of the "The Esprit of La General" , defined as the set of values that make up our identity as officers, bond of cohesion and comradeship between classes and union between Corps and Arms.

During the course of the event, the appointment of the new Honorary Cadet takes place, a title that has been granted since 1990 to recognize those personalities who have stood out most for their cooperation, dedication and support to the Academy.
