Portugal: Praça Marquês de Pombal in Lisbon

Today I got two postcards: my first card from Portugal and one from New Zealand.

Portugal is country in Southern Europe bordering on Spain. Portugal is a member of the EU, of the NATO, of the OECD and of the UN.

The card shows the Praça Marquês de Pombal in Portugal's capital Lisbon. The Praça Marquês de Pombal was built at the end of the Avenida de Liberdade. On the square is a 36m tall statue of Sebastião José de Carvalho e Melo. In 1910 the important events of the proclamation of the first Portuguese Republic took place on the square.


The card was sent from the Postcrossing Meet-up in Lisbon.
Stamp:
EUROPA (from set of two) (issued 09-05-2014)


Thank You very much Sabrina!
