"but before leaving Puerto San Julian we made sure to get a photo with the real scale replica of the Nao Victoria. A visit to the museum will tell you that the ship arrived in March 1520. It was captained by the famous Portuguese explorer Ferdinand Magellan and was in fact the first ship to circumnavigate the world. When you have the information as you stand before the ship it's really hard to believe how, since it looks so small!" Among the 18 survivors who returned to Seville was Antonio Pigafetta from here in Vicenza. In fact, his family home is here and around the corner from us. You are right, it was an amazing feat considering the size of the boat but it was at great cost in lives. Awesome report!
