    Default Portulano

    tuve ocasión de contemplar la magnífica colección de mapas portulanos, especialmente de la escuela mallorquina, que allí se conserva

    My attempt:

    “I had occasion to contemplate the magnificent collection of portulan maps, especially of the Majorcan school, that is conserved there"

    I think the right term is "Portolan charts"
    Portolan chart - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Hope it helps!

    Creo que aquí, contemplar quiere decir “study or view”, y conserva está en el sentido de “preserve”. Mi intento es: I had occasion to study the magnificent collection of portulan (sin mayúscula) charts, especially of the Majorcan school, that is preserved there.

    La palabra “map” se entiende perfectamente, pero, si es para navegar sobre agua, la palabra exacta (náutica) es “chart”.

    Hey, I like the new look of the forum.
