Where is the Lighthouse...?

White Studio, the designer company, created several pictograms (I counted 74), to depict visual stories about Porto, its people, landmarks and natural surroundings.



A group was dedicated to the river and the sea. Waves, bridges, umbrella, anchor, etc, etc, ... and a lighthouse.



All the pictograms together are located at the bottom of the 4 stamps.





The stylized lighthouse is at the top right corner of the name of city.

Where is the Lighthouse?
Stamp 2 of 4


Sadly, the ruins of the lighthouse of Capelinhos did not enter in the design for a few meters. But at least, we have the location marked on the map of the stamp.



The Capelinhos lighthouse is the co-star of the most dramatic stamp of our topic. I am talking of the issue in occasion of the 50 anniv of the eruption of the volcano with the same name in 2007.
