Let’s go now to Socoa, commune of Ciboure, in the Basque Country with this original work by Lotza. The fort of Socoa was built in 1636 by the French engineer Jean-Baptiste Dupuy de la Serra, with the aim of defending the coast against maritime attacks. During the French Revolution, the fort was transformed into a prison for nobles and refractory priests. Later, it was used as a military hospital, barracks and ammunition depot.
Over the years, Socoa has become a favorite destination for tourists looking to relax on its sandy beaches and explore its historical heritage. Visitors can stroll the streets of the town and admire the traditional Basque houses, as well as enjoy the many restaurants offering local specialties.
Lotza‘s postcard depicts the natural beauty of Socoa, with its crystal clear waters and iconic fort. This illustration is a great way to capture the spirit of this historic town and bring back unforgettable memories for those who have visited Socoa or dream of doing so.
You will find below a situation to better see the postcard.
The postcard is sent (via La Poste) in a bubble envelope.
