DescriptionThe Grand Tour of Cosimo di Ferdinando de' Medici, included many of the great states of Europe. The travel diaries of five members of his retinue describe the visit in great detail, providing a rare account of the city and the pilgrim's rites and rituals. Another member of the prince's entourage, Pier Maria Baldi, painted a large-scale panorama of Compostela, the most valuable cityscape from the 1600s known to date. This volume charts a journey to one of the most important pilgrimage sites in the world, then held as an eq ual to Rome and Jerusalem, that stimulated the piety of the man who would become Cosimo III de' Medici, Grand Duke of Tuscany.
