O nosso Alentejo em 1736 e 1795

Today, I came across two old maps of Portugal in Prague. On the Homann heirs map from 1736, you will find the villages that surround our little village of Campinho, with an interesting mention of "Afonso" that may be referring to the Monte Maria Afonso. Below is the F.J.J. Reilly map from 1795.
