Ferdinand Magellan ( Portuguese : Fernão de Magalhães , Spanish : Fernando de Magallanes , Sabrosa , 17 October 1480 - Mactan , 27 April 1521 ) was an explorer and navigator Portuguese . Began the first circumnavigation of the globe in the service of the crown Spanish . He was the first from Europe to the West in direct Asia and the first European to sail in ' Pacific Ocean . The story of his journey is received by the notes of one of his men-at-arms, the Vicenza Antonio Pigafetta , who worked for the rest of his life to keep alive the memory of Magellan and his business.
The circumnavigation was not the end of Magellan, he just wanted to find the passage to the west to the Spice Islands and India.
But Magellan himself in his life had completely circumnavigated the earth: from 1505 to 1511 had been in the East, where he had also visited the Moluccas. Although there would be back in 1521 had come to the Philippines thus having already crossed the meridian of the Moluccas.
