Spain – Spain is a country that can boast of art and culture and can be proud of the magnificent museums that guard that art throughout the Spanish geography.

One more year, Correos contributes to the diffusion of these buildings that store in their interior priceless pieces and of the most varied subjects.

The National Museum of Underwater Archeology of Cartagena, the Center Pompidou of Malaga, the Museum of La Rioja, each make up three new stamps, which form three new issue, one for each of the museums. Each sheet contains 12 stamps.

National Museum of Underwater Archeology of Cartagena: was created in 1980 with the purpose of coordinating and directing the studies and treatments of the materials of submarine origin. The new headquarters of the Museum was inaugurated on November 26, 2008, by the prestigious architect Guillermo Vázquez Consuegra on the quay of Alfonso XII in the city of Cartagena. It preserves archaeological materials related to maritime traffic in the Mediterranean, from Phoenician times, through the Punic, Hellenistic and Roman world.

Center Pompidou of Malaga: in the last years the city of Malaga has become one of the most important cultural and artistic capitals of Spain. Proof of this is the growth of the number of museums in the city. One of the last to land in the capital of the Cosa del Sol, is the Center Pompidou, which has become the first foreign branch of the Parisian colossus. Its permanent collection deals with five themes: metamorphoses, the body in pieces, the political body, self-portraits, and the faceless man. Both the stamp and the Premium Pliego are illustrated with the work of Daniel Buren Incubé.

Museum of La Rioja: The Museum of La Rioja has been located in the Espartero palace of Logroño since 1971, and in it there are paintings and sculptures from the 12th to the 19th century, although there is also a section dedicated to ethnography and other to contemporary art. There are the tables of San Millán, from the fourteenth century. The stamp shows an image of one of the rooms of the Museum dedicated to the Renaissance.
