The Painting of Bernardo de Galvez hangs at the very end of the long hall at the Hotel Galvez. Many who see it get a chill for they say they can feel his eyes following them as they walk past. Report poor in to several in the paranormal community that much like Robert the Haunted Doll in Key West, Florida this ghost does not like having his portraits picture taken unless you ask his permission first.

Many who try taking a photo of this real haunted painting like Hotel guest Greg Dauber, say that only after they ask the ghost for his permission can a good photo be captured.

The Hotel Galvez since the early 1900s known as the "Queen of the Gulf," has undergone a total renovation to recapture its original glamour while updating the hotel's accommodations and facilities to the latest standards. And it is haunted! Constructed in 1911, Hotel Galvez was named after Bernardo de Galvez, the Spanish Colonial governor who first chartered the Texas Gulf Coast and for whom the city of Galveston was named. Hotel Monthly billed the hotel as one of the "best arranged and most richly furnished seaside hotels in America" a year after the hotel opened. Decades later in 1980, the hotel was named in the National Registrar of Historic Places.

To see this haunted painting in person sends chills down the spines of some of the most staunch skeptics. Or so they say.

Bernardo de Gálvez y Madrid, Viscount of Galveston and Count of Gálvez (Spanish: Bernardo de Gálvez y Madrid, vizconde de Gálveztown y conde de Gálvez) (July 23, 1746, Málaga, Spain—November 30, 1786, Mexico City) was a Spanish military leader and the general of Spanish forces in New Spain who served as governor of Louisiana and governor of Cuba. He spent the last two years of his life as viceroy of New Spain, succeeding his father Matías de Gálvez y Gallardo, who had been viceroy before him.

 

Gálvez is remembered for aiding the United States in its quest for independence in the American Revolutionary War. Galveston, Texas and several other places are named for him.
