This spectacular die-cut seal reproduces the dome of the Cathedral of Burgos. With him we celebrate the VIII Centenary of the construction of this cathedral.
It was in 1.221 when Bishop Mauricio laid the first stone of what would be the new Cathedral of Burgos, which would replace the previous one of Romanesque style. This building is perhaps the most representative of the Gothic in our country, following, to a large extent, the pattern of French Gothic.
In the second half of the fifteenth century three important works were built inside the cathedral: the Chapel of the Constables, the spires and the dome. Almost three hundred years later, the extensions would be completed with the new sacristy and the Chapel of the Relics.
Inside there are works by important artists such as Diego de Siloé, Juan Pascual de Mena or Juan de Vallejo, author of the reconstruction of the impressive dome of the cruise, protagonist of this issue.
The cathedral of Burgos was declared a National Monument on April 8, 1,885 and, later, in 1,984, UNESCO proclaimed it a World Heritage Site.
Belonging to the Ephemerides series, this die-cut seal reproduces the dome of the wonderful Burgos cathedral.

What is a block sheet, and how is it different from a normal seal?
Taking into account that the normal seal has only the surface occupied by the seal, the block sheet is an illustrated surface where one or more seals can appear, so its dimension will be larger, occupying that of the seal and the rest of the sheet and, their sizes and shapes can be very varied.
A curious fact that also differentiates the seal and the block sheet, is that in the first one live characters cannot appear, but in the environment of the seal in the block sheet yes.
