Cover from Spain no. 2

Another cover from Spain, this time sent from Madrid on 9 March 2009 and received 2 days later. The stamp was issued on 2 April 2009 in the series "Architecture" with 5 other fabulous pieces. This breathtaking skycraper called Torre Agbar, 144 metres tall, was opened to public in 2005 in Barcelona. It is a work of the French architect Jean Nouvel, who claimes that it was inspired by Montserrat, a mountain near Barcelona, and by the shape of a geyser rising into the air; and it is science fiction come true.

Thank you, Carmen!
