Magellan

UNESCO World Heritage - Magellan and the Manueline age

As in 2019, the UNESCO World Heritage Collection returns to Portugal in 2021 to mark the 500th anniversary of the death of Fernand de Magellan. The Portuguese sailor was one of the first to undertake and complete a Round the World trip after discovering a passage that connects the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans to which he gave his name: The Strait of Magellan.
