Hello everyone!

There is a sentence in a text, I believe the text uses a little literary language, it is a descriptive text, I understood the words, but I do not understand if it is an exclamation or the meaning in general, the sentence is this with the original punctuation: ''...What settlements there are line the banks of the River Nebra, ..."

Okay this is the sentence, it is into of this text: One of the large desert regions of Dalmasca, located to the east of Rabanastre. Rife with all manner of monstrous beasts, it regularly plays host to hunts organized within the city. What settlements there are line the banks of the River Nebra, a vibrant blue vein running through the heart of the sands, wherein can be found ferries for the conveyance of travelers and goods across her flow. Many merchants make a good point of stopping in the villages to trade on there way to and from Rabanastre.

Re: Help to understand the meaning of a sentence in a text !

Welcome to the forum, Zenoel.

It means 'There are very few villages, and they are all on the banks of the River Nebra'.
