I didn't notice that this thread was old until you mentioned it! I hope it keeps going.An old thread but I got a great sello (carimbo in these parts) today that I wanted to share. The pension where we’re staying in Mértola (Casa do Funil) didn’t have a stamp but one of the owners is an urban sketcher so he made two of these special sellos for us!
Edit: the sketch shows the clock tower of Mértola which can be seen from the accommodation.

Presumably we were all out walking, busily gathering sellos in realtime. Now would have been a much better time to post this thread.It's hard to understand why this thread disappeared so quickly long ago.
Where is this, Paul?? I missed it!On the Invierno, between Sarria and Ourense.
The design includes the rose window of the 12th C chapel next door.
On the Miño, south of the dam.
Ohhhh. I see now. North of where the Invierno crosses it at Belesar.On the Miño, south of the dam
I figured it was quite a long time ago. In more recent years they would definitely get "writer's cramp" with the volume of pilgrims coming through their doors if they continued such an extra personal touch.The Roncesvalles sello that I posted above is from March 1989.
