Regreso a Sevilla de Juan Sebastián Elcano en 1522. Elías Salaverría, 1919. © Museo Naval de Madrid

17/09/2019 - 19/01/2020 - Madrid / Exhibition

We Were the First. Magellan, Elcano and the Voyage around the World

The exhibition explains the challenge of a journey which began 500 years ago, when five ships set out from Seville, and ended three years later when just 18 men returned on a single ship, empirically proving that the world was a globe. Even today it is no easy feat to sail across three of the world’s five oceans, but they were powered only by the wind and guided by rudimentary nautical instruments.

Apart from recognising the achievement of these explorers, the exhibition also shows how the voyage changed the course of the world and its impact on many fields - navigation, science, geography, astronomy, diplomacy, economics, and more.

A selection of the best pieces in the Naval Museum, and others loaned by prestigious museums and institutions, are on show in five exhibition spaces: “The World of Magellan and Elcano”, “The Origin of the Voyage”, “Preparation for the Voyage”, “The Voyage” and “Consequences: a New World.” The exhibition also includes a panoramic audiovisual inside a geodesic dome, telling the dramatic story of the crew members.
