65th International Pilgrimage to Lourdes

On the occasion of the 65th International Pilgrimage to Lourdes of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta, scheduled from 5 to 9 May 2023, the Poste Magistrali counter located inside the Magistral Palace in Rome, with public entrance from Via delle Carrozze 79, will use on 5 May 2023 the special postmark created for the event.

The postmark, created by Giancarlo Federico, reproduces an image of the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Lourdes seen from the river Gave da Pau.

The postmark is completed by the inscriptions “SOVRANO MILITARE ORDINE DI MALTA” and “POSTE MAGISTRALI”, the legend “LXV PELLEGRINAGGIO INTERNAZIONALE A LOURDES” and the date “5.V.2023”.
