On 6 September 1522, Elcano and the remaining crew of
Magellan's voyage arrived in Sanlúcar de Barrameda in Spain aboard
Victoria, almost exactly three years after they departed. They
then sailed upriver to Seville, and from there overland to
Valladolid, where they appeared before the Emperor.

2022 First Circumnavigation of the World - 500th Anniversary
On March 16, 1521,
Portuguese navigator Ferdinand Magellan, attempting to sail around
the world for Spain, reached the Philippine archipelago. Magellan
and his expedition were the first Europeans to reach the
Philippines, a stop on the first circumnavigation of the globe,
though Magellan’s portion of that journey would soon end.
He was killed in a fight with
islanders in the Philippines. He died on 27 April 1521 in Mactan
Island, Cebu, Philippines.
(1480–1521) was a Portuguese explorer who is credited with
masterminding the first expedition to circumnavigate the world.
The expedition of five ships and 250
men had left Spain on September 20, 1519. Magellan sought a western
route — avoiding the southern tip of Africa, which Portugal
controlled — to the Spice Islands (the Moluccas) of Southeast Asia.
Magellan survived two mutinies before sailing around the southern
tip of South America, finding the strait named for him, in November
of 1520. Reaching calm waters after a dangerous passage, Magellan
named the ocean west of South America “the Pacific Ocean.”
