This striking map focuses on three of Spain's autonomous communities: Catalonia, Aragon, and Navarre. The mountainous topography of these areas is depicted along with many towns and rivers. The map extends beyond northwestern Spain to show the Spanish-French border, a bit of Basque Country, and Valencia. The wonderful title cartouche provides a glimpse into the rural activity in the region.
