This is a very fine small chart of Lisbon showing its protected location a few miles from the mouth of the Tagus River. The map shows several large sand banks at the river mouth that resulted from the devastating earthquake of 1755, which left a narrow navigation passage between Saint Julien Fort and Fort Bougie.
