ALMERIA has a huge presence on social media and the internet, but this month images of the province will reach all corners of the country and overseas in a more old-fashioned way. 

The province is the featured region for August in the post service’s ’12 months, 12 stamps’ series.

Unveiling the commemorative stamp at the provincial government offices in Almeria city, Diputacion Vice-President Angel Escobar and Post Office Stamp Collecting director Modesto Fraguas, revealed the design is made up of some of the province’s most distinctive symbols, including an indalo, a Garrucha red prawn, Raf tomato, a cowboy, the Alcazaba fortification and the Cabo da Gata natural park coastline. 

Escobar thanked the post office for dedicating the stamp series to Almeria in such an important month for the tourism sector and for the design which he said captures “our strengths of agriculture, our main economic motor, the seagoing tradition, culture, cinema and our beaches, which every year attract thousands of visitors.”
