A lovely bird's-eye view of Goa, with north oriented to the bottom. The view shows the streets, buildings, and surrounding area with a numbered key at right. The coastline is filled with ships, and a pair of elephants are shown on the docks. This map appeared in Tome VIII of Abbe Prevost's Histoire Generale des Voyages, which was published in 20 volumes.
