Postcard 55 features a wonderful digital illustration by an artist we all admire, Rafael Cachaldora. As you may remember, last year we sent 5 postcards by Cachaldora which represented various places of Ourense's old town. This time, however, the spot represented is not located in Ourense; card 55 constitutes a vibrant and captivating representation of the well-known cathedral of Santiago de Compostela from Obradoiro Square (Square of the Stonecutters).
Santiago's Cathedral is the final destination of the Camiño de Santiago and the centre point for the celebration of the Feast of Saint James on July, 25th. ESO 2 students have written the postcard in Spanish upon its recipent's request and sent it to one of the most amazing cities in the world, Saint Petersburg, the origin of the 18th postcard received in this project.
