Antique harbor chart and plan of Havana, Cuba

Piano della Città e Porto dell' Havana

DESCRIPTION: Antique chart from 1763 of the city and harbor of Havana on the island of Cuba. Two legends at far right in Italian are keyed to specific locations on the map including: the market; the Cathedral; churches; the powder magazine; defensive batteries and gun emplacements. Numerous soundings and shallow areas are identifed within the harbor. "Forte Moro" (Morro Castle) is clearly drawn opposite "Puntale" or San Salvador de la Punta Fortress, both guarding the entrance to the harbor.

Created by Marco Coltellini, drawn by Gieuseppe Pazzi, and published in volume 2 of the 1763 edition of the magazine "Il gazzettiere Americano"
