The Benidorm Post Office, will now use a new illustrated postmark that, unlike the traditional one, in addition to the name of the town, carries a drawing alluding to the population and will transfer that image of Benidorm to any corner of the world.

Benidorm has been throughout history a motif and stamp image and commemorative postmarks. The Benidorm skyline starred in the homage of the national post office to the province of Alicante in 2018 and, on the occasion of the 25th Anniversary of the Benidorm Song Festival (1985), a commemorative postmark was coined for that event.

Benidorm was also a pioneer in pre-stamped Postcards in 2012 and 2017, distributing the image of the city through this philatelic-postal product.

The postmark will be permanently in the Benidorm Main Post Office, and its stamp will be part of the thousands of philatelic collections of this type of postmark that exist around the world.

This tourist postmark initiative began to be operated by Correos in 2014.
