This paper aims at highlighting the importance of drawing as a reflection of a historical period (the sixteenth century) where the Spanish Monarchy exercised a strategic control on North African coasts and cities. The effort deployed in cities such as Melilla, Oran, Merz el-Kebir, Algiers, Bizerte, Bejaia, Bona or Tripoli was enormous, and the warlike actions were represented in different ways to facilitate the wide circulation of such events. This text tries to analyze a significant part of the set of images created with particular emphasis on military architecture and the urban areas. From this, we learnt that those plans, engravings, tapestries and paintings were used as graphic documents that complemented and enriched the literary text, in the drafting of history, while offering recreations that range from the reliable, the falsified and the imaginary.
