History

The 10 in August of 1519 two hundred and fifty men left the port of Seville aboard five ships called Santiago, San Antonio, Trinidad, Concepcion and Victoria. This expedition, known as “the Army of the Spice”, He set out to sea under the command of Hernando de Magallanes with the aim of finding the unknown passage between the Atlantic and the Pacific and reaching the islands of spices by sailing west.. The expedition traveled the South American Atlantic coast to the unexplored southern tip, discovered the mythical passage between the two oceans, crossed the Pacific Ocean for the first time in history and reached the Moluccas Islands, its objective. By then their captain had died, more than two-thirds of its crew had been lost and three of the five ships were missing. Just one ship, la nao Victoria, I would set out on my way back through the Indian Ocean. The other ship, the Trinity, I would try the return by the way of the Pacific without success. La Victoria sailed for months non-stop along the route of the “roaring curenta”, soared up the Cape of Good Hope and up the Atlantic, after a short and dramatic stopover in Cape Verde, to the port that saw her leave: Sevilla. I had on board only 18 mens. The Nao Victoria had completed the First World Tour in History.

This is the epilogue of a series of ocean voyages that, starting from the Iberian Peninsula, revolutionized human knowledge and created the foundations of the modern world..
Upon returning to the starting point after always sailing westward, the Nao Victoria joins the great oceans of the earth; definitively closes the image and dimensions of the world and man becomes real aware of the planet on which he lives. Since then, the borders would be other.
