21 октября 1520 года кругосветная экспедиция Фернана Магеллана достигла пролива между Атлантическим и Тихим океаном

Magellan easily distinguished between the strait and the river: he tasted its water. In honor of the holiday that coincided with strait discovery, Magellan titled the strait separating continental South America from the Tierra del Fuego the Strait of All Saints. “However, future generations will gratefully rename it into the Strait of Magellan,” wrote Stefan Zweig.
