Václav Hollar - engraver - View of Tangier with the Bowling Green from the cycle Tangier Views
Given the nature of the place and the purpose of the military outpost, the life of the Tangier garrison must have been tedious, except of course when it was „enlivened“ by numerous attacks from the sea and the land. The soldiers passed the time on the bowling „green“, built specifically for the purpose.
