ROSACCIO, Giuseppe. [Fortress of Sopot, Albania]
Fortezza di Sopoto. Venice: Giacomo Franco, 1598. 100 x 175mm.
Sopot, on the Albanian coast just north of Corfu, published in Rosaccio's 'Viaggio da Venetia a Constantinopoli'. The fortress is shown under siege, with the use of cannon. In 1570-2 the Venetians took control but had to hand it back after the treaty of 1573. This probably represents an Ottoman counter-attack.
