The first circumnavigation by Magellan & Elcano

On Septembre 6 1522, after three years of sailing, Juan Sebastian Elcano arrived at Sanlucar de Barrameda (south of Spain) on Victoria Nao. He had completed the first circumnavigation demonstrating that the Earth was round although its diameter was longer than Columbus has said.

Top historical events. Chronicle of the first circumnavigation:

On August 10 1519, five ships and 250 sailors left the port of Sevilla. The Captain was Ferdinand Magellan.

They crossed the Atlantic Ocean looking for a pass to the Pacific Ocean. Of course, Panama channel didn’t exist, and they had to skirt the coast of South America.
Precesily, Magellan named the only pass between the two oceans (Strait of Magellan).

On October 21 1520, they entered in the Pacific Ocean, and started to explore its silent waters and several islands (Marianas).

On April 27 1521, Magellan was killed in Philippines while trying to subdue and Christianize the population.
Thus, Juan Sebastian Elcano assumed command and finished the trip on September 6 1522.

Historical events. “The church says the earth is flat; but I have seen its shadow on the moon, and I have more confidence even in a shadow than in the church.” By Ferdinand Magellan.
