The Longest Voyage

#ElViajeMásLargo #VCentenario | "The Longest Voyage: The First Journey around the World" is an exhibition and documentary programme that reflects on the attitude of man before a long trip into the unknown. It connects the first circumnavigation of the Earth with the individual challenges of the present and the collective challenges of the future. The project begins in 2018 with the exhibition following the steps of Magallanes and the preparations of the first circumnavigation with the traveling exhibition "The Dream, 1518-2018", and will continue with the celebration, in 2019, of a great exhibition in the Archivo General de Indias in Seville around the first circumnavigation of the Earth and the importance of "travel" for the evolution of mankind.

The Magellan–Elcano circumnavigation was the first voyage around the world in human history. It was a Spanish expedition that sailed from Seville in 1519 under the command of Ferdinand Magellan, a Portuguese, in search of a maritime path from Spain to East Asia through the Americas and across the Pacific Ocean, and concluded by Spanish navigator Juan Sebastian Elcano in 1522.

Elcano and the 18 survivors of the expedition were the first men to circumnavigate the globe in a single expedition. Following Magellan's death in Mactan (Philippines) in 1521, Juan Sebastián Elcano took command of the ship Victoria, sailing from Borneo, the Spice Islands and back to Spain across the Indian Ocean, round the Cape of Good Hope and north along the west coast of Africa. They arrived in Spain three years after they left, in 1522.

This catalogue accompanies the exhibition that, with the same title, organises Acción Cultural Española to remember and celebrate the V Centenary of the expedition of the first world circumnavigation by  Fernando de Magallanes and Juan Sebastián Elcano. The publication analyzes this feat and its protagonists, as well as the attitude and courage with which humanity has faced the challenge of the unknown. An adventure of the first order as it was, that gives rise to review and represent our desire for knowledge. This vision is what offers us "The Longest Journey".​
