I was just curious that they would have an Exhibition for War Stamps but then again why not, there are other specialist Expos too when I think about it !
Those 2 blocks are really nice as is the latest addition to your collection.
When I was last in Barcelona, I was with my wife and teething baby so my only philatelic 'outing' was to the Post Office to buy some latest issues (sold long ago). I don't recall that I knew about the market, I think I found out about that much later.

Next time I will make sure I am in Catalonia on a Sunday !!

I'm glad that you like them.


This one, was issued in 1937 by the anarchist CNT/FAI union, to help war front hospitals.

Barcelona, 1900. Unió Catalanista (Catalan Nationalist Party). Saint George, patron of Catalonia under our national arms: four red stripes on a yellow field.

Gràcia, is an old village that, in 1897, became a district of Barcelona. Nevertheless, each August we still hold our anual feast. For the 1936 Edition, our grandfathers had prepared this cinderella, showing one of our twon's landmarks: the civil belfry (1865), located on Gràcia's main square. 

Unfortunately, the outburst of the 1936/39 war, in July 19th, aborted the celebrations.

This cinderella exists on, at least 3 colors: red. green and yellow.
