The “Catrineta Ship” brooches

The Catrineta Ship is a poem written by an anonymous poet from the 17th century.

It tells a story about a difficult journey made by Jorge de Albuquerque Coelho, a nobleman,  aboard Santo Antonio carrack in the Atlantic Ocean, from the New World to Lisbon in 1565. Sailing in stormy waters and being attacked by pirates turned the journey into a long desperate adventure, as the crew starved.

The legend says Santo Antonio miraculously reached Lisbon when the crew already thought of resorting to cannibalism to survive.

There comes the Catrineta Ship 

Which has much to tell!

 Listen now, oh lords,

 A shocking story.

It was over a year and a day

They had been travelling back by sea;

They didn't have anything to eat anymore,

They didn't have anything to consume...
