This scarce chart centers on Palermo, the capital of Sicily. It extends from Capaci east to Solanto and depicts the coastline with intricate topographical detail. Palermo is shown in miniature plan form and is divided into four sections: S. Ninsa, S. Oliva, S. Cristina, and S. Agata.
Soundings and hazards appear in the Tyrrhenian Sea. The sheet features two views of approaches to the Bay of Palermo.
