Postcard from Spain no. 2
This postcards shows a fantastic view of the pond and gardens at the Alcázar de los Reyes Cristianos (Fernando and Isabel) in Córdoba, Andalucía, a World Heritage Site since 1984.
And the stamps made me happy too, as they are part of a series initiated this year of Spanish provinces, with their maps and flags (including the flag and the national emblem of Spain). The two regions featured here are Cantabria and Euskadi (Basque Country) in the north. "A" tariff corresponds at the moment to 32 eurocent (postage for sending a normalised letter of up to 20 grams within Spain).
A similar series is now issued in the USA, Italy, Russia, etc.
