Description
Battle of Lepante (Lepanto), October 7, 1571. The loss of Cyprus in 1571 caused the reaction of the Christian League led by Don Juan of Austria (1547-1578), which sent a fleet of more than 200 Venetian and Spanish ships, as well as a squadron of the Papaut and Genes (Italy), to the Gulf of Lepante (present-day Naupaktos, Greece) where he met the Turkish fleet. Painting from Flemish school. Oil on canvas, late 16th century National Maritime Museum, Greenwich
