12 de October, 2022

The Minister of Foreign Affairs visits the exhibition Ferdinand Magellan. The Minister of Foreign Affairs, João Gomes Cravinho, visited the exhibition Ferdinand Magellan. Across the Worldwide Seas, which documented the circumnavigation (1519 to 1522), initially planned and commanded by Ferdinand Magellan and completed by Sebastian Elcano. Realised in partnership with the Mission Structure of the 5th Centenary of the First Circumnavigation, the exhibition focused on the history of a discovery – the discovery of the blue planet and the Pacific Ocean – and included a section dedicated to the biography of Ferdinand Magellan and his experiences in the service of the Portuguese Empire, and another on how the world remembers Magellan today.
