spain-081104Cover from Spain, posted in Carballo on November 4, 2008.

The stamps are of the 2008 architecture series. The left stamp depicts the “Auditorio de Tenerife” (auditory of Tenerife), which was built from 1997 to 2003 and has an area of 6471 m². The right stamp depicts the “Torre de Comunicaciones de Montjuïc, Barcelona” (Communications tower of Montjuïc), which was built from 1989 to 1992. It is 130 m high and represents an athlete holding the Olympic flame. Both buildings were designed by the famous architect Santiago Calatrava.

Thank you, José, for this nice cover!
