Europa 2017 - Castles
EUROPA stamps are special stamps issued by European postal administrations, which bear the official EUROPA logo. EUROPA stamp issues are among the most collected and most popular stamps in the world. Each year PostEurop's Stamps & Philately Working Group selects the EUROPA stamp theme and for 2017 this is " Europe - Castles"
Guernsey's most famous Castle, Castle Cornet has stood guard over St Peter Port's Harbour for 800 years. Built in 1202 to defend what was once a busy trading harbour, it remains surrounded by the sea, a short walk from the town centre with spectacular panoramic views of St Peter Port and out across to the other Channel Islands
Castle Cornet, listed as a Protected Monument in the late 1930's, is a museum in itself, and one that also houses five museums within its ancient walls.
