Where is the lighthouse?:


In the background of the second stamp, we can see the iconic figure of the "Cerro de Montevideo" (Montevideo´s Hill). And at the top,  there is a lighthouse with the same name.

Where did I see it before?
-In 2002 this lighthouse had a special issue for the bicentenary of life.


 - And as I told before, this hill is an iconic figure in Uruguay, so it appear in numerous stamps. For example:


In the 1965 National Flag issue

Do you like golf? In this stamp from 1996 the Farola appear at the top.




Or in this serie from 2009, honoring to Charles Darwin. Look for it and you will find it.
