Portugal Issued Stamps on Centenary of Grão Vasco Museums

portugal museum stampsThe Grão Vasco National Museum is celebrating its centenary, and the CTT Correios de Portugal (Postal Operator of Portugal) is to mark this important anniversary for this eminent institution by issuing this philatelic issue in honour of the event. In doing so, it seeks to pay homage to this significant part of Viseu’s heritage, a museum that has provided a relevant cultural service to the city and surrounding region. This area has garnered a national and even international profile as home to a museum that is universally recognised as first class due to the artistic and historical splendour of its collection, which has made it one of Portugal’s foremost museums.
