Named in memory of Juan Sebastian del Cano, the first person to circumnavigate the earth.

He took charge of the Magellan expedition’s remaining route back to Spain on board the carrack “Victoria” after Ferdinand Magellan’s death in Mactan, Cebu in 1521.

The Katipunan was founded on this street (Elcano, San Nicolas, Manila) on July 7, 1892.
