The Ships of Magellan
Did you know?
The ships of Magellan that reached the Philippines 500 years ago were not galleons but naos or carracks.
The Magellan-Elcano Expedition did not use the famous Galleon ship but instead used the smaller ‘Nao’ or ‘Carrack’. These ships are smaller than galleons and better designed as merchant ships for the Mediterranean and Atlantic rather than the Pacific.
