V Centennial. In 2019 the celebration of the V Centenary of the first circumnavigation expedition of Ferdinand Magellan and Juan Sebastián Elcano, an essential event in the history of international navigation and the milestone that confirmed that the Earth is navigable in all its roundness. But, even more so, a journey that meant a great expansion of the Spanish language and inaugurated subsequent globalization processes. The first circumnavigation of the globe, which forever expanded the known world, its cultures, its interconnectivity and its biodiversity.

This journey that began in 1519 and ended in 1522, and in which five ships and two hundred and sixty-five sailors, of ten different nationalities, took part, is resumed by the Government to coordinate the different activities and initiatives to commemorate this anniversary. In view of them, the National Commission for the commemoration of the V Centennial was created for the preparation and programming of commemorative events that celebrate and remember this impressive feat. This Commission joins initiatives that are being carried out both by civil society and by Spanish public institutions and by other States.
