This very detailed map of Portugal shows the sea coast from Cap. de Silleiro down to Cap. St. Vincent. There is great detail of the rivers in the region, roads, political boundaries, and hundreds of cities, including Lisbon and Porto. This beautiful map was published by Jean B. Nolin in 1736 and again republished in 1752 in Atlas Compendiarius by Homann Heirs. The decorative title cartouche features the royal coat of arms and the bountiful produce in the region.
