Spain, 1519.

Five ships and 270 men leave the familiar shore behind on an extraordinary quest: to find a western sea passage to the sought-after Spice Islands of Indonesia.

They’re led by the Portuguese seafarer and nobleman Ferdinand Magellan, setting out on a voyage that would change the world. Three years later, the impossible has been done: the expedition becomes the first to circumnavigate the globe. It’s a historic achievement.
