The tip of the Galleon touches with his bowsprit a cartographic map that shows the Admiral’s travels to America.

Since this moment the contributions of America to the world begin to be considered. The different cultures, the step pyramid of the Sun, a totem of the north american aborigines, a variety of food such as the potato, the tomato, the squash, the cocoa, the corn, the Flora and the Fauna.
