IMAGES of Almeria are going far and wide this month by good old-fashioned post. The province is the featured region for August in the post service’s ’12 months, 12 stamps’ series.
Unveiling the commemorative stamp, provincial council Vice-President Angel Escobar and Post Office Stamp Collecting director Modesto Fraguas, revealed the design is made up of some of Almeria’s most distinctive symbols. An indalo, a Garrucha red prawn, a Raf tomato, a cowboy, the Alcazaba fortification and the Cabo da Gata natural park coastline are all included.
Escobar thanked the post service for dedicating the stamp series to Almeria in such an important month for the tourism sector and for the design, which he said captures “our strengths of agriculture, our main economic motor, the seagoing tradition, culture, cinema and our beaches, which every year attract thousands of visitors.”
