Description:
The Canary Islands acted perfectly as refueling ports for Spanish carracks heading out of Europe as well as those returning from South East Asia and the New World. This is represented here by the numerous ships surrounding the archipelago. Madeira is also mapped to the top left, another set of islands used for this purpose by the Portuguese.
