This Monaco stamp celebrates Albert I's travels across the seas, focussing on his many trips to the Azores.
For more than 35 years, aboard his ships, Prince Albert I has traveled seas and oceans.
His work led him to visit many countries, including the Azores archipelago, which was the preferred destination for thirteen scientific expeditions.
Albert I was sensitive to the mild climate, the beauty of the landscapes and above all, the hospitality of the inhabitants of the Azores. The painting by Louis Tinayre represents the inauguration by Prince Albert I, on September 2, 1904, of the avenue that bears his name in Ponta Delgada.
