Goa Fortissima Indiae Urbs ... : F. De Belleforest

click here to view a large version in a separate window

From Francois Belleforest's scarce French edition of Sebastian Munster's "Cosmographia", this attractive woodblock plan-view was copied from that in the "Civitates" of Braun and Hogenberg. The plate is cut from a large text sheet. Goa, lying on the banks of the Mandavi estuary, was the capital of the Portuguese trading empire in the eastern world from 1510 for the next hundred years. After 1601, the Dutch became pre-eminent in the region and, although Portugal was still active, the city's importance declined.
