This map illustrates the city views drawn by Georg Hoefnagel for Braun and Hogenberg's Civitates Orbis Terrarum (1572-1617). Hoefnagel depicted himself in many of his views, drawing cities, or travelling with his companion, the cartographer Abraham Ortelius. The Map below shows a detail of Hoefnagel's travels in Andalusia.
