Travel

The networks of exchange between Iberia and the British Isles could hardly have happened without travelling. Not only did Catholic exiles made their way to the Iberian Peninsula, but also merchants, diplomats, soldiers, and even scholars moved from one place to the other for a variety of reasons. Travelers’ accounts like Pinheiro de Veiga’s Fastiginia give a very rich insight into the cultural encounters resulting from these trips.
