Gustavia, capital of Saint Barthélemy

capital of Saint Barthélemy
Gustavia is the main town and capital of the island of Saint Barthélemy (Saint-Barth). It was named after King Gustav III of Sweden. Saint-Barth is the only Caribbean island which was once a Swedish colony for a longer period. Today Saint Barthélemy is an overseas collectivity of France.

In Saint-Barthélemy French stamps are used.
2017 issue for Europa-stamp theme castles. The stamp shows both the Château d'Azay-le-Rideau and Chambord. Both are part of Unesco World Heritage site "Loire Valley between Sully-sur-Loire and Chalonnes".

Thank you so much Denise!
