Vinaròs y el Baix Maestrat

The Valencian Ministry of Infrastructures, Territory and the Environment, via the Cátedra Demetrio Ribes, is proud to present the exhibition Una mirada al territorio: Vinaròs y el Baix Maestrat. El legado cartográfico (siglos XVI–XIX) [A perspective of our territory: Vinaròs and el Baix Mestrat. A cartographic legacy (sixteenth–nineteenth centuries)], in collaboration with Vinaròs Town Council.

This exhibition reflects our rich heritage of plans, maps and views passed down by engineers, military engineers, road engineers, surveyors and topographers who, when planning a port or dock, defending a strategic site or recording a cove or anchorage, had to find ways to represent this region. This historical journey, based on partial portraits of the territory, gives us the chance to get to know the long history of this region and its relationship with the sea through a beautiful selection of maps.

This rich heritage stretches across space and time, with some surviving remains and other parts that have disappeared. For this reason, these planimetric representations of the region are an invaluable source of information to study infrastructures and the land on which they have been built, the landscapes they have created, the way the space has been organised and the technology used, as well as the movement of people and goods, including their routes and flow.
