Pilgrimage: The Voyages of Fernao Mendes Pinto – A Stunningly Remastered DVD Release
Watch the Portuguese Pilgrimage movie, so that you can see the adventurous voyages of Fernao Mendes Pinto brought to life.
Fernão Mendes Pinto was a Portuguese explorer and writer who lived from 1509 to 1583.
He traveled extensively throughout Asia during the 16th century, and his book Peregrinação (Pilgrimage) recounts his many adventures.
Pinto’s book was published after his death in 1614, and it quickly became a bestseller.
However, its veracity was immediately questioned, as many of the events described in the book seemed outlandish.
In fact, some historians believe that Pinto may have fabricated many of his stories.
Regardless of its accuracy, Peregrinação is a fascinating and entertaining read full of exciting tales of adventure, shipwreck, and intrigue.
The 2017 film Pilgrimage is a loose adaptation of Pinto’s book.
The film is visually stunning, and it does a good job of capturing the excitement and danger of Pinto’s travels.
I hope you enjoy the movie!

Over a span of twenty years, 16th-century Portuguese explorer Fernão Mendes Pinto lived a life of unparalleled adventure while traveling across the continent of Asia as a soldier, merchant, diplomat, pirate and missionary.
Shipwrecked and taken prisoner numerous times, he was one of the first Europeans to visit Japan and was even sentenced to a year of hard labor on the Great Wall of China.
Above all, however, he was a highly skilled writer and his controversial memoir, “The Travels of Mendes Pinto,” was published posthumously in 1614.
Called by many as one of the greatest adventures ever lived, PILGRIMAGE — adapted from Pinto’s writings and featuring songs from the folk musician Fausto Bordalo Dias — details the explorer’s legendary journeys at sea and on land in unforgettable fashion.
