V CENTENARY OF THE TOUR OF THE WORLD OF MAGALLANES AND ELCANO (1519 - 1522)
From the Asociación de Bibliotecarios de Toledo (ABITO) and with funding from the Ministry of Education and Culture of the Spanish government, we started this project in commemoration of the V Centenary of Magellan and Elcano's (1519-1522) circumnavigation of the world, considered the greatest maritime feat of all time. This project covers different activities and events with which it is intended to spread information and provide knowledge of this incredible adventure that led to a social, economic and cultural change in the history of humanity. The activities will be carried out mainly in the Cultural Houses of Toledo, Novés and Cabañas de la Sagra and this website will collect all the information, images and videos of each one of them. Frequently visit this site to keep up to date with all the events and if you want to learn more and have a fun time, participate in our Escape Room Online, available in the main menu, and solve all the enigmas about Magellan and Elcano around the world that are raised in it.
WINDOWS TO HISTORY: THE STRAIT OF MAGELLAN AND THE SPICE ISLANDS IN THE XVIth
Our Association, as a continuation and complement to its previous project "circumdedisti me", continues to promote educational and cultural exchanges with other institutions, always with the objective of disseminating the heritage and work of our Libraries, for this, and thanks to the Ministry of Culture and Sport of the Government of Spain, we continue to carry out activities now focused on the two most important points of the expedition: the Strait of Magellan and the Spice Islands. We hope it will be of your interest and liking.
