Unesco RR - only real cards

This is a really nice RR but i only took part once and i received cards from Spain and Romania.
This first one was sent by "maestla" from Spain and the second one from "lindus" from Romania.

La Lonja de la Seda de Valência - "Built between 1482 and 1533, this group of buildings was originally used for trading in silk (hence its name, the Silk Exchange) and it has always been a centre for commerce. It is a masterpiece of late Gothic architecture. The grandiose Sala de Contratación (Contract or Trading Hall), in particular, illustrates the power and wealth of a major Mediterranean mercantile city in the 15th and 16th centuries." - in http://whc.unesco.org.

Wooden Churches of Maramureş - "These eight churches are outstanding examples of a range of architectural solutions from different periods and areas. They show the variety of designs and craftsmanship adopted in these narrow, high, timber constructions with their characteristic tall, slim clock towers at the western end of the building, either single- or double-roofed and covered by shingles. As such, they are a particular vernacular expression of the cultural landscape of this mountainous area of northern Romania." - in http://whc.unesco.org.
