The first circumnavigation of the world was an epic adventure full of complications. This is the story told in first person by one of its protagonists: Hernando de Bustamante, who worked as a barber-surgeon on the mission. His voice will guide us on a journey marked by horror and courage, despair and wonder. A journey of some ships and men who wanting to reach the Isle of Spices went around the world proving its roundness.
