  • Activiteit: Commemoration


The first truly global achievement began in Seville in 1519. Spain is preparing to commemorate what became the first circumnavigation of the globe: the expedition of Ferdinand Magellan and Juan Sebastián Elcano.

Spain was the starting point of a voyage which would take three years and become a historic milestone. Five ships, with a crew of over 230 men, began a voyage to the Spice Islands (part of what is now Indonesia) in search of new routes, which ended in 1522 after they had sailed all the way around the world.Spain will mark the occasion by organising special events from 2018 to 2022. The events will be especially important in the ports where the voyage began (Seville and Sanlúcar de Barrameda), their stopping place in Tenerife, and the city of Valladolid, where King Charles I of Spain gave Magellan his consent for the expedition.
