1607. Teatro del Mar, Punta Umbría, Huelva

















Querida Cristina,

Una foto postal de Punta Umbría con el ayuntamiento de la
localidad en el centro. Este edificio debe su tipología a las primeras
casas inglesas que fueron el germen de esta localidad.
También al fondo se puede ver el Teatro del Mar, obra de José
Ramón Moreno que se inauguró en 2006.

Besos,
R
