April 27, 1521, limang daang taon na ang nakalilipas, nang mapatay ng hukbo ni Lapu-Lapu si Ferdinand Magellan sa Mactan.

Si Magellan ang nagdala ng Kristiyanismo sa Pilipinas,  habang labis naman ang pagtutol ni Lapu-Lapu sa pagpasok ng mga dayuhan sa ating bansa.

Dahil sa pagkamatay ni Magellan, hindi na niya nasaksihan ang kauna-unahang matagumpay na paglalayag paikot ng mundo. Dahil sa paglalayag na ito, natuklasan ng mga taga Europa ang Pilipinas. Ito rin ang nakapagpatunay na bilog ang mundo

Si Juan Sebastián Elcano ang pumalit kay Magellan bilang kapitan ng barkong Victoria at pinuno ng expedisyon ni Magellan.
