68th private swap : Spain

68th  Spain 31.5.2011
Really love traditional building, houses and churches.
Thanks a lot, Irene. This is a very beautiful card !!!
According to Irene, it's the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela.
The Holy Door is only opened in Holy years when 25th July happened on Sunday.
The Cathedral was built during 11th to 13th centuries,
it is an UNESCO site sine 1985.
And I guess this my first UNESCO card?

My second Spanish card from Fabienne.
This is a cute card showing the traditional Madrilenian costume
wore during the San Isidro Feast(May 15).
 San Isidro is the patron saint of Madrid.
This festival marks the start of the bullfighting season.
On 15th of May, people dress in this type of costume and
have traditional dancing ("chotis")and
open air concerts to celebrate the festival.
