The Phinisi Spirit
The mysterious Spice Islands enjoy an evocative ancient history, conjuring romantic visions of majestic sailing ships, exotic sultans, the golden age of exploration, and enigmatic jungle tribes whose culture and traditions have survived intact for thousands of years. Columbus, Magellan, and Francis Drake all sailed in search of the Spice Islands.
Savage intrigue and battle, the North East passage dream, and discovering the Americas all occurred pursuing nutmeg and pepper. For centuries the fabled spice trade was known for its land routes through Asia and the Middle East, routes that ended in Europe.
