Wiki Loves Monuments

Spain goes wild

on Nov 12, 2011

On November 1st the jury announced the results for Wiki Loves Monuments in Spain. It was not an easy decision since almost 18,000 images from all around the country had been submitted for the contest, an extraordinary success! It makes us especially happy that so many new users took part in the contest. Thanks to everyone who participated! The jury announced the top 3 winners and the list of ten images that will represent Spain in the European contest.

These are the images:
