Very desirable and early town-plan of Antwerp. "The eye is struck by the star-shaped citadel built by the Duke of Alba on Antwerp's southern side, the defensive moat and the harbour serving the prosperous center of commerce. The city center is clearly recognizable with the Onze-Lieve-Vrouwe cathedral (1), its town hall (24) behind it overlooking the Grote Markt and the fish market (17). The north tower of the Gothic cathedral is the city landmark. First mentioned in records in AD 726, Antwerp was granted its charter in 1291 and in 1315 became a Hansa town. The merchants' guilds relocated here and between 1347 and 1496 Antwerp's population grew from 5,000 to 50,000. By 1565 this figure is estimated to have reached 95,000. In the 16th century Antwerp was also an important center of the arts and home to the leading printer and publisher north of the Alps, Christoffel Plantin.
The prosperous metropolis attracted numerous artists (including Jan Brueghel the Elder, Peter Paul Rubens and Anthony van Dyck). But Antwerp, too, became embroiled in the Wars of Religion, and in 1585, the city was taken by the Alexander Farnese, Duke of Parma.
Countless Protestant merchants and craftsmen were subsequently driven out of the city, whose importance declined sharply as a result. ."
