Postcard from Vatican

Received yesterday and sent on 26/11/2009 from Vatican, a nice evening view of St. Peter's Basilica in St. Peter's Square. The 0.65 euro stamp is part of a series of seven stamps issued on 10 February 2009 celebrating the 80th Anniversary of Vatican City State (1929 - 2009). This particular stamp shows a portrait of the Pope Pio XII (1939 - 1958). Interesting is the red automatic cancellation. Thank you, Rita from Portugal!
