Showing a fine style, the city of Roses and its associated castle is shown, as are soundings at sea and the mouth of the Eiboria River. This map predates the development of L'Escala and the canaled city of Empuriabrava. Focus is given to Roses as this city provides a strong defense for an important harbor in the region.
