ABSTRACT
This study offers a biographical sketch of the traveler Gianfrancesco Gemelli Carreri (Radicena, 1651-Naples, 1725), who undertook (among other travels) a trip around the world between 1693 and 1698. His European dealings are placed in context, his literary output scrutinized, and the controversies surrounding the publication of his Giro del Mondo (1699-1700) discussed. The latter part of the study examines the circumstances behind his journey from Manila to Acapulco and the richness of his account of it, one of the most detailed and fascinating texts we have of a passage across the northern Pacific.El trabajo aborda la biografía del viajero Gianfrancesco Gemelli Carreri (Radicena, 1651-Nápoles, 1725), quien realizó, entre otros viajes, una vuelta al mundo entre 1693 y 1698.
