"Patrimonio Mundial. Monumentos de Oviedo y reino de Asturias"
Issue date: 10th May 2017

The imprinted round shaped postage stamp represents the reverse of a two-euro coin, which is put into circulation this year.

The coin is showing the Palace of Santa María del Naranco, located four kilometers from Oviedo, on the southern slope of Monte Naranco. Originally it was not projected as a church, but it was the Aula Regia of the palatial complex that King Ramiro I had built on the outskirts of the capital of the Kingdom of Asturias.  

The illustration of the miniaturesheet does not show a view from the Palace of Santa María del Naranco. It is an Astuarian landscape about 100 kilometres away from Oviedo. It shows a view from (appr. 43°16'15.44"N 4°59'4.92"W) towards the Ercina lake and the Picos de Europa in the background. The highest mountain on the right edge of the image is the Torres de María (2'486 m).
