The Laws of Burgos: Columbus and the map of America illustrate this beautiful stamp of 2013 to remember the first codification of laws governing the behavior of Spanish settlers in America, especially when it came to indigenous peoples.
Landmarks: stamp issued in 2013 alludes to the recognition of landmarks launched in Spain in 1513, under the reign of King Fernando.
