Elkano. La Primera Vuelta al Mundo


From November 27, 2019 to May 31, 2020

The merit of having made the first round the world has been attributed to different historical figures. There are three main candidates: Francis Drake, Fernando de Magallanes and Juan Sebastián de Elcano. For the first time, this exhibition reveals the transcendental role of Elcano and the Basque contribution to the First Tour of the World (1519-1522), one of the great events in the history of mankind.
