THE NAO VICTORIA

10 04 2015

 

DON´T MISS THE OPPORTUNITY OF

VISITING THE NAO VICTORIA!!

The Nao Victoria, the exact replica of the first ship to go around the world, comes into Bilbao

She will be docked next to the Ria de Bilbao Maritime Museum and open for visitors from April 10th to April 12th.

The Nao Victoria is a replica of the first ship that circumnavigated the world between 1519 and 1522. The voyage was an assignment by the Spanish Crown to Ferdinand Magellan to find a new route to the Islands of the Spices by sailing west. He sailed out from Spain with 5 vessels, from which the Victoria was neither the largest nor the smallest. Magellan was killed in the Philippines, and the vessels suffered different destinies. The only ship that made it back to Spanish shores was the Victoria, led by Juan Sebastian Elcano, officially the first seaman to sail around the world. The Nao Victoria was built in 1992 for Sevilla’s World Expo, and after a few years of working as a stationed cultural attraction, she was made seaworthy in order to emulate Magellan and Juan Sebastian Elcano’s adventure, sailing around the world from 2004 to 2006.

The genuine Nao Victoria was  built in the Basque Country and  led by Juan Sebastián Elcano who managed to surround the land. Thirty Basque sailors formed  part of this expedition, and four crew members out of them succeeded  in circumnavigating the globe for the first time in  history: his captain Juan Sebastián Elcano from Getaria, Juan de Acurio from Bermeo, Juan de Arratia from Bilbao and Juan de Cubileta from Barakaldo.

Come aboard with its “Nao Victoria experience” and don´t forget to take pictures, information and literature about it.

You may use it for the third term Social Studies Project : “THE AGE OF DISCOVERIES”.

2014 in review. Thanks to everybody.

8 01 2015

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 13,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 5 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
