Welcome aboard this celebration of one of the greatest feats of the modern world – the first circumnavigation around the globe.
Ferdinand Magellan’s feat, which is being noted five centuries later around the world, did not confine itself to the discovery of a passage between oceans, but to bringing peoples and cultures together.
He prepared his mission thoroughly, using the geography knowledge consolidated until then and benefiting from his studies and researches.
Nevertheless, Ferdinand Magellan didn’t have only the Knowledge but also the Will: the will to travel beyond, not knowing barriers, but challenges, which he continued overcoming. Always! Until the last one…
500 years later, we are celebrating this feat from a Portuguese navigator.
