Just as some documents lead to the conclusion that Juan de la Cosa (1449-1509) was born in Santoña (Cantabria), others, on the other hand, seem to demonstrate that he was from Biskaia. Pedro Bilbao is of this last opinion. He is the author of a motion the famous navigator that accompanied Christopher Columbus as the owner of the Santa María in the two trips in 1492 and 1493. Juan de la Cosa was also the author of a magnificent map (1502) in which, for the first time in the History, America is represented as separated from Asia. The motion is complemented by a series of observations and precisions signed by Eskibel.
