Originally published in 1659 by one of the Dutch cartographic masters, Jan Jansson, this is one of the rarest and most decorative 17th century maps of Spain and Portugal.
This is a wonderful, handcoloured map with an immense amount of detail. Of course, all the major cities are shown on the map, and there are coloured borders around each of the ancient provinces, including Catalonia, Valencia, Andalucía, etc.
There's also a close-up view of Madrid, Lisbon, Seville, Barcelona, Granada and other cities around the edge of the map. There's even 8 pairs of figures to show you what Spanish people and fashion looked like back then. All in all, one of the finest old maps of Spain you can find.
This map looks great at all sizes: 12x16 inches (31x41cm), 18x24 inches (45.5x61cm) and 24x30in (61x76cm), but it looks even better when printed large.
I can create beautiful, large prints of this map up to 100 inches (254cm). Please get in touch if you're looking for larger, customised or different framing options.
The model in the listing images is holding the 20x16 inch (51x40.5cm) version of this map.
Please note, the unframed 24x30 inch map has white edges around the map. These edges can help you with framing, or if you don’t need them, they are very easy to snip off with scissors. All other maps, including the framed maps, look exactly like the listing images.
Many of the towns, villages and cities in both Portugal and Spain are already visible in this map.
The locations on this map of Spain include: Barcelona, Madrid, Seville, Valencia, Bilbao, Granada, Cordoba, Toledo, Salamanca, Santiago de Compostela, Mallorca and Malaga. In Portugal, you can see Lisbon, Porto, Sintra, Evora, Tavira, Coimbra, Aveiro and Braga.
This would make a wonderful birthday, Christmas, work leaving or housewarming gift for someone from Portugal or Spain or has the Iberian Peninsula in their heart.
This map is available as a giclée print on acid free archival matte paper, or you can buy it framed. The frame is a nice, simple black frame that suits most aesthetics. Please get in touch if you'd like a different frame colour or material. My frames are glazed with super-clear museum-grade acrylic (perspex/acrylite), which is significantly less reflective than glass, safer, and will always arrive in perfect condition.

I use a unique process to restore my maps that is massively time consuming and labour intensive. Hunting down the original maps can take months. I use state of the art and eye-wateringly expensive technology to scan and restore the maps. As a result, I guarantee my maps are a cut above the rest - that's why I can offer a no-quibble refund.
Almost all of my maps look amazing at large sizes (200cm, 6.5ft+) and I can frame and deliver them to you as well, via special oversized courier. Contact me to discuss your specific needs.
