12 Months, 12 Stamps - Burgos - Set for only GBP £0.61
In March the Burgos will feature in the series 12 Months, 12 Stamps, which covers a total of 14,269 square km, or 2.83% of the area of Spain. The province of Burgos, as currently defined, dates from the mid-19th century, but the history of this territory goes back to the pre-Roman peoples and beyond, including Europe’s oldest hominid settlement, the Paleolithic remains of the Sierra de Atapuerca. Occupied in its time by Romans and Muslims, this is the land where the kingdom of Castile began to take shape.
