Price unit:
6,45 €

Description

Seal dedicated to the Landscape of Light, which includes the Paseo del Prado between Cibeles and the Plaza del Emperador Carlos V, in Atocha, the park of El Retiro and the Jerónimos neighborhood. The Landscape of Light was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, on July 25 in the Chinese city of Fuzhou.

The gardens of the Buen Retiro were designed by Philip IV in the seventeenth century as a recreational space for the kings of the House of Austria. During the time of the Bourbons, they grew in space and facilities. Fernando VII rethought the environment, giving rise to new constructions and places such as the Casa de Fieras, the Real Embarcadero and the Jardín de Caprichos or Reservado, of which some buildings remain such as the Artificial Mountain and the Fisherman's House.

At present it constitutes one of the largest green lungs of the capital, being water one of the most important elements that has its greatest representation in the Large Pond, along with the extensive and diverse vegetation that composes it.

Charles III arrives in Spain as king after the death of his brother Ferdinand VI without descendants and brings with him his enlightened and rational ideas acquired during his reign in Naples. These ideas are reflected when he projects the realization of the Paseo del Prado, a wide space that should encompass Art, Science, Education, Elegance, Comfort and Beauty. UNESCO highlights in its choice the relevance of combining nature, culture and science in an urban environment, something that made Madrid already in the sixteenth century the first sustainable capital of Europe.

The stamp includes a beautiful illustration of the Crystal Palace, which was built in the late nineteenth century to house an exhibition of tropical flora brought from the Philippines, but currently stands out as a tourist point and as a center for exhibitions and different cultural events.

 

Landscape of Light, 'Bibliotelia' and World Heritage

If in past editions, the National Seal Fair has hosted initiatives as varied as dinosaur exhibitions with replicas of different species, giant afterseals, Stormtrooper, hot air balloons, which have served to bring philately to a greater number of people, or activities related to comics and humor, on this occasion the theme of the fair revolves around the Landscape of Light, the 'Bibliotelia' and the World Heritage and its relationship with the label.

On the one hand, the 'Bibliotelia' is characterized by combining the book format with authentic stamps inside. It's a brilliantedition and collection at the same time, which are integrated into a bibliophile-philatelic artistic work and the result are true miniature jewels. On the other hand, the World Heritage series are mythical in the philatelic area and in that of general culture. The declaration of assets as World Heritage is a recognition granted by UNESCO to sites that have an Exceptional Universal Value and what better than philately to represent it. This 2022 also commemorates the Landscape of Light, a unique set present in Madrid that is referred to in several works.
