Portugal on stamps

This issue commemorates the 17th Council of Europe Exhibition, which took place in 1983 in Lisbon, under the title “Portuguese Discoveries and Renaissance Europe”. The exhibition was spread over four 16th century buildings: the Madre de Deus convent, the Casa dos Bicos (House of Spikes), the Jerónimos Monastery and the Belém Tower, the last two forming a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The stamps were designed by António Mendes, lithographed by the Mint on enamelled paper sheets of 5×10 stamps with perforation 12×11½ and a phosphor band (except the 40$00 value), and circulated from 6 April 1983 to 31 August 1989.
