Celebration of the Pacific Day

Celebración del Día del Pacífico - IMG2

Once again, Casa Asia and the Spanish Association of Studies of the Pacific (AEEP) commemorate the Pacific Day in memory of the 6th of March 1521, when the Spanish boats of Fernando de Magallanes and Juan Sebastián Elcano reached Mariana Islands, which was where inhabitants of the islands of the Pacific and European visitants first met. This 3 year voyage is known for being the first successful circumnavigation of the planet.

On this occasion, within the context of the 5th Centenary of Magallanes and Elcano's First Journey Around the World, the historian Alfredo Alvar will deliver the lecture “Elcano confesses himself”.

Welcome words:
Carmen Díez Orejas, Assistant Director of Casa Asia Centre-Madrid

Rafael Rodríguez-Ponga, President of AEEP and Rector of University Abad Oliba CEU
Alfredo Alvar, teacher of Research at the Human and Social Science Centre of CSIC
