This exhibition, organised by the Dirección General del Libro, Archivos y Bibliotecas de España, selects documents and plans from the Archivo General de Indias in Seville, which show the urban model established by the Spanish colonisers in America and the emergence of the American populations.
These documents illustrate the process of founding cities, population laws, urban planning models and their evolution from the arrival of the Spanish conquistadors until the 18th century, providing a typology of the cities that were established.
The plans and maps chosen are of great beauty and have a wide geographical scope, covering a wide range of countries including: Panama, Chile, Mexico, Guatemala, Venezuela, Honduras, Uruguay, Cuba, Brazil, Nicaragua, Argentina and Costa Rica, finally emphasising the case of the cities in Peru.
The exhibition is highly representative in terms of urban works, including roads, waterworks, bridges and city quadrants in these countries.
SIZE: 32 framed pictures to hang on walls.
