This is a much distorted birds-eye view of the Cote D’Azur from Nice in the west to Monaco in the east. Villefranche can be seen in the middle. The relative positions and sizes of the promontories are distorted to illustrate the three main towns. From the ‘Topographia Gallia’ by Martin Zeiler published 1655-61. All of the plates were the work of Matthaus Merian, one of the finest engravers of the seventeenth century.
