Joint Issue Portugal-Peru

Stronger bonds between Portugal and Peru

On 10th Aug. Portuguese Post Office issued one stamp depicting the architect and painter Raul Maria Pereira (Sabrosa, Portugal 1877-1933 Lima). This year is his 130 anniversary.

On the background of the stamp you can see the "Casa de Correos y Telégrafos" (Post Office House) located in Lima, Peru designed by him.

Technical details of the issue:

facial value: € 0,75
size: 30,6x40 mm

I'm planning on making a joint FDC Portugal-Peru so if you can send me unused FDC of the Peruan issue please email me and I'll return with the Portuguese FDC. Thank you.

One curiosity... Sabrosa is also the birthplace of explorer Ferdinand Magellan... His maritime voyage became known as the first successful attempt at circumnavigation of the Earth. And even stranger... "Sabrosa" is also track 8 on the Beastie Boys' 1994 album Ill Communication... Well... I don't like that much of them but who doesn't know their songs?!? Barbara Ann, Good Vibrations, Surfin'USA, California Girls... and may others!! Do people still listen to their music?
