“for a nice evening diner after a visit to Middelburg”
The old town of Veere (which is worth a visit) has hardly changed over the centuries. Veere held one of the four seats for the Chamber of Zeeland (Middelburg was entitled to the other three) in the Heeren XVII, the governing body, the Heeren XVII, in the VOC (the Dtuch East India Company).
In the long history of the “Descrittione di tutti i Paesi Bassi”, Claesz added this map to the atlas in 1609. This copy was published in the Dutch edition by Willem Blaeu in 1612.
In one of its port towers, there is an excellent restaurant!
