History of the magical Spice Islands & Raja Ampat

There is an unknown aspect of history, that is ingrained in the Spice Islands. In the 16th century, Europe craved cloves and nutmeg, turning these islands into gold-dusted battlegrounds. Portuguese, then Dutch, clashed and claimed the land.
Immerse yourself in the captivating history of the Spice Islands! Journey back in time and uncover the remnants of a bygone era, where empires clashed and fortunes were made on the fragrant treasures of nutmeg, cloves, and mace.
