In the context of the 5th Centenary of Magallanes and Elcano's journey around the world, we will remember in this lecture some historical objects that were used back then by one of the most representative countries of this journey. It consists of the Philippines, where the Spanish ships docked after crossing the Pacific Ocean and where Magallanes died.
