They wintered at Puerto San Julian, a natural harbor that Magellan named, in what’s now the country of Argentina. they stayed there for five months, from March until August 1520.
the expedition crossed the equator through the Atlantic Oceanmaking their way toward the east coast of South America.
The Victoria was the only ship to make the complete voyage. Lead by Spaniard Juan Sebastian Elcano, the Victoria crossed the Indian Ocean and circled the Cape of Good Hope.
Two months later they found an entrance to the passage Magellan hoped for.
The hazardous 373miles of the Strait took three weeks to sail.
I will name it the "all saints strait"
That was a very hard battle
On April 27, 1521 he was killed by a poison dart during a battle between indigenous people on Mactan Island.
May him rest in peace
Both ships reached the goal destination: the Moluccus or “Spice Islands” (in modern day Indonesia) and loaded valuable spices to bring back to Spain.
Without enough sailors to man the three ships the crew abandoned and burned the Concepcion to board the Trinidad and Victoria.
On September 9, 1522 she sailed into Seville with a crew of 18 men.
