During the 18th century, Europe was undergoing drastic transformations. The Spanish monarchy had fallen into Napoleon's hands, and the English feared for their American territories. The war through the sea was inevitable. Hispanic America wanted independence, but Spain clung jealousy to its monopolies. Meanwhile, a group of men secretly plotted the "Great American Meeting" in London. There, Francisco de Miranda, Simón Bolívar, Bernardo de O’Higgins, and Jose de San Martin agreed on a continental plan that would change history forever. A group of them set sail for Buenos Aires on an English frigate, embarking on a risky mission under signs, words, and secret signals: the freedom of South America.

Join us on this tour through the fascinating hidden history of the Freemasons in the Río de la Plata and their influence on historical processes.
