Magellan’s arrival to the Philippines on Videoconference

Magellan’s arrival to the Philippines on Videoconference


On June 13, at 6 pm, Instituto Cervantes de Manila is presenting a videoconference on the first circumnavigation of the world. The guest speaker will be Tomás Mazón, a specialist on the topic and creator of the website La Primera Vuelta al Mundo (

Interest in the historical Magellan-Elcano expedition is growing in the Philippines, particularly because the country was part of this voyage when the Magellan landed in the Archipelago in 1521.

Many of the details of what happened are well known, but others remain obscure. In his talk, titled “Magellan & Elcano in the Philippines: Details in the historical archives”, Tomás Mazón will present the results of his research from the archived sources and the chronicles to complete or clarify the account of what happened.

Although an engineer by profession, Tomás Mazón has devoted his time to research on various articles on this topic. He regularly publishes the results of his research in his website.

The videoconference, presented by Instituto Cervantes de Manila in collaboration with the Embassy of Spain in the Philippines, will be held on the Zoom platform and will be conducted in Spanish, but simultaneous translation in English will be provided.

The audience will be able to interact with the speaker by submitting their questions during the event. Admission is free on a first-come, first-served basis. For further information and updates on this event, please check out or Instituto Cervantes’ Facebook page:
