Gibraltar 1705

An ariel view of Gibraltar in 1705 by Louis Boudan. Most of the ships show English flags rather than French. There is no indication of the Round Tower that was attacked on 6th and 7th Feb 1705. The fortifications indicated on the Rock are the Batterie Superieure and, lower down, Le Pate, on the near end, and Tour del Hacha towards the lower end. The Round Tower is said to be at the near end and is probably Le Pate.
