Fourth issue of the ATM set dedicated to the postal architecture in Spain.

The main post office in A Coruña is placed in the Plaza del Alcalde Manuel Casas on a soil gained from the sea.

It was built between 1927 and 1931 following a project in "Art Déco" style of the architects Luis Lozano Losilla and Joaquin Otamendi Machimbarrena.

The two architects worked in collaboration in a rationalist style and the fruits of its work is one of the most emblematic and singular G.P.O. building around the country.

The building has three floors with a very well composed façade. All in it is symmetry, harmony and sobriety. 
In the middle of the building was erected the clock tower appearing on the ATM issue.
