Old maps of South America

Old maps of South America

North America always gets all of the attention, eh? Well, here at The Unique Maps Co. we think that South America is just as interesting! Did you know that Colombia was once called Gran Colombia, occupying most of the top of the continent?

Did you know that Spain controlled most of the southern end of South America, and Argentina only gained independence from Spain in 1818?

With old maps dating all the way back to the dawn of cartography by Sebastian Munster in 1544, to modern masterpieces like Faden's giant map of South America in 1807, and even maps of Mayan ruins, I've got you covered.
