Throughout  the 13th to the 16th century, Basque naval technological evolution would produce craft that came to dominate the commercial routes opened up between the Mediterranean and the European Atlantic. This process culminated with the development of the ocean-going ships, which were protagonists of the first circumnavigation and exercised their hegemony in the relations between the old and the new worlds. 2018 is the year of cultural heritage, and the antechamber of the 5th Centenary of the First Circumnavigation of the World by Juan Sebastian Elcano on board the Victoria.
