Where is the Lighthouse?
Stamp 2 of 4


Sadly, the ruins of the lighthouse of Capelinhos did not enter in the design for a few meters. But at least, we have the location marked on the map of the stamp.



The Capelinhos lighthouse is the co-star of the most dramatic stamp of our topic. I am talking of the issue in occasion of the 50 anniv of the eruption of the volcano with the same name in 2007.
