New stamps on Bridges

The Spanish Correos issued two stamps within the series “Bridges of Spain”. This time, the issue is dedicated to the Bridge of Besalu (Gerona) and the Los Santos Bridge over Ria de Ribadeo.


The Bridge of Besalu (Girona) is one of the most characteristic bridges of the medieval period. It is located in the medieval village of the same name in the province of Gerona. It began to be built in the 11th century to save the river Fluvia¡ and establish communications between the town and the land on the other side of the river.

The Bridge of Los Santos over Ria de Ribadeo links the towns of Ribadeo (Lugo) and Castropol (Asturias) and is a highlight of civil engineering. It was built over the vast Ribadeo estuary between 1983 and 1987. The bridge is 600 meters long.

The issue is a one stamp souvenir sheet featuring an aerial view of the estuary and the town of Ribadeo. In the stamp is depicted the modern bridge of Los Santos and the town of Ribadeo.
