With this die-cut booklet featuring the profile of the north coast of the Peninsula which comprises eight self-adhesive stamps, Correos highlights UNESCO’s inclusion of The Routes of Northern Spain in its List of World Heritage Sites as an extension of the French Way of St. James, which was already declared as World Heritage in 1993. The Routes of Northern Spain are four routes that extend the 800 km-French Way by 1,499 km and that run through the autonomous regions of the Basque Country, La Rioja, Cantabria, Asturias and Galicia. One of these routes is the Coastal Way, which has been highlighted in foil to illustrate the route. It starts in Irún and continues towards Compostela, leaving an unforgettable trail in cities such as San Sebastián, Bilbao, Santander and Gijón, before entering Galicia. It is one of the routes with the most history along with the Original Way, and is as old as the French route.
