Title Plan Der berühmten Vestung Gibraltar.
Year ca. 1740
Description
Two maps on one sheet show the Strait of Gibraltar and a map of Gibraltar on the southern tip of the Iberian Peninsula.

The Strait of Gibraltar is a narrow strait that connects the Atlantic Ocean to the Mediterranean Sea and separates Gibraltar and Peninsular Spain in Europe from Morocco and Ceuta (Spain) in Africa. The Romans called it Fretum Gatitanum (Strait of Cadiz), and in the ancient world it was known as the "Pillars of Hercules" in ancient Greece.
