In 1880, an extraordinary encounter took place in a small town in southern Brazil called Curitiba.
An old pirate who was hiding in the city told his secret to a fellow countryman who visited him, and even gave written directions on how to discover an incredible hidden treasure on the Trinidad Island.
Sixteen years after this encounter, in 1896, the English citizen who had met the pirate wrote letters to Jornal do Brasil telling all the details, and revealing part of the treasure map´s script he received from the old pirate.
The treasure map´s script was published in full in a Brazilian newspaper, in the early days of World War II.
