National Monuments, “Pica” and “Matilla”
Extraordinary postal issue
Series composed of two stamps illustrated by hand with watercolor polychrome pencils, on a background sand desert color.
The first stamp shows the image of the church of San Andrés de Pica, built at the first time in 1620, delimited in the lower part by the title “National Monuments” and by the phrase “Pica… flower in the sand”.
The second stamp shows the image of the church and bell tower of the town of Matilla, whose first construction dates from 1716, delimited in its lower part by the same title and by the phrase “Malilla… the beauty”.
To this series is added a label with the image of the celebration of the patron saint of San Andrés de Pica, patron of the city, which takes place on November 30 of each year.
