Big Unesco RR - Group 41 II

These are the other 3 cards i've received from the Big Unesco RR. They're from Poland, Germany and Brazil. I already had cards from these sites but these are different views.

Not so long ago i've received an official card with Krakow's Barbican and for this RR, "bodexs" sent me Warsaw's Barbican. This classical Gothic structure separates the Old Town district from the New Town.
In 1980 the Historic Town of Warsaw was classified as World Heritage Site and the Barbican is a major highlight in this part of the city.
The semi-circular Warsaw Barbican served as a fortified outpost for many years since being built in the mid-16th century.

Speyer is a city of Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany. Founded by the Romans, it is one of Germany's oldest cities.
Speyer is dominated by the Speyer Cathedral, which was added, in 1981, to the UNESCO World Heritage List of culturally important sites as "a major monument of Romanesque art in the German Empire".
The cards was sent by Kerstin "schoolbag".

Luciano sent me my 5th Ouro Preto card. Ouro Preto a city in the state of Minas Gerais, Brazil, a former colonial mining town, designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1980, because of its outstanding Baroque architecture.
Ouro Preto is a major tourist destination, for its well-preserved colonial appearance with old buildings and cobblestone streets.
