The launch of The expedition of the corsair Portuguese D. Gonçalo Camelo to the coasts of Huelva, in 1336, by the Algarve historian Fernando Pessanha, was launched on June 9, the Patio de las Letras, in Punta Umbría, Spain.

Sevilla, from Editamarketing – Service of Communication and Editorial Design.
